Claire Kelly: Deuteragonist
“Deuteragonist: The secondary character in a narrative.”
This sculpture is two pieces: one featuring a bright orange fox and another featuring a skunk below a striped tree.
Claire Kelly’s work examines the human connection with animals and their larger relationship to our world and environment. She has created a series of “fantastic microcosms that bring a consciousness to their decorative status,” she says. “My sculptures tell a story about the fragility and conservation of these small worlds as well as describing their role in a grander scheme. I’m curious about what we see in my toy-like animals and what they see when they look back.” Her work is exhibited internationally.
