Kellianne McCarthy works with oil, acrylic, and collage on wood panels. She is known for her saturated color palette and blend of imagery, abstraction, and pattern. She uses those elements to create spaces where the concrete and surreal meet. Influences filtered into her work include the altar pieces produced during the Renaissance, the ungraspable vastness of the universe, and our child-like understanding and use of nuclear power. She was born in Philadelphia, PA. She received a BFA in Painting from Moore College of Art and Design in 1992. She is a RN currently working in Philadelphia.
