Kate C Kelly’s solo show, Keeping, sight of a Fragile humanity, is the artist’s response to the disempowerment of humanity through the fallout of war and conflict. Drawing from her own experience growing up during the ‘troubles’ in Northern Ireland, she does not shy away from the darker truths that arise from war but portrays these with sensitivity. This body of work is threaded in compassion and seeks not leave us feeling hopeless, but rather to reinforce our sense of bonding with humanity.

The Artist:

A graduate of the National College of Art & Design Dublin, Kate has spent her creative life working in multiple art forms. She has exhibited in Ireland and the UK.
Her art practice deals with issues pertaining to social, environmental and global matters. Drawing solidarity with other social artists around the globe, she uses her arts practice as an effective tool for social dialogue and documentation. Her style is expressive, concerned with fleeting moments of human emotion, sometimes gentle and sometimes raw. Her work was recently shortlisted for the 2019 Social Art Award and subsequently selected for publication.
