Kelly Boyle – Creator of Spontaneous Psychedelic Phantasmagoria
The artwork presented reflects a personal journey of self-awareness and progression of finding balance between my emotive and logical nature. Influenced by surrounding frequencies, environments and everything else that I absorb on the way; happiest at gigs in a meditative state, each pen stroke produced in time with the beat. Tuning in I capture the flow and the essence of the moment, creating a world within itself that illustrates my own life-force and that which encircles me. I use ballpoint pens when drawing and acrylics and posca pens when painting.
Intuitively making initial marks then logically give shape to the imagery presented, rotating the page when stumped allows for a fresh perspective and direction. Having freedom without ideas leaves no room for mistakes or self-deprecation, everything happens as it should. Retrospectively through symbology, lessons and meaning become apparent.
The eyes are the soul of my work; they represent my emotion at the time of creation. Each piece is transformational and titled with the date of completion, which directs the order of progression.
Life’s natural balance of order and its contrasting factors are highly influential in my work, which is represented by my need to always achieve balance over perfection.
The imagery appears differently to different archetypes/people, suggesting a conversation between objective and subjective perspectives. I believe this to be important about art and life, people coming together and finding freedom in their own opinions, feeling comfortable to share their own thoughts, as well as accepting and respecting the individual interpretation of others; helping us to remember that we coincide as a collective but we all live in our own reality.
