Kirk Fanelly’s collage and oil paintings are a great reminder that you can create gorgeous works of art, have a sense of humor, and make the viewer laugh and be disturbed all at once. Fanelly completed his BA from Brown University in 1999.
His work is part grounded in the solidity of the day to day and the objects and people that surround him. From those points, he flushes out narratives, humor, and dimensions that are either hidden or obscure. His desire is to be influenced by his studio space at McColl Center – introducing new interiors, people, light and ideas to his work.
