My name is Jody Kelly, I am an Ayrshire figurative painter who is fond of working from snapshots or awkwardly taken and unconventional photos.
The truth is there’s beauty in the mundane and life moves too fast these days. I want to slow it down to the moments that most people would never look at twice.
I am drawn to images that get the viewer back to look at the world in new ways and finding a childlike fascination and (sometimes) strangeness in split second moments of time in the mundane. I hope in this way I create a surreal atmosphere in my work.
