Kelsey Chapple was born and raised in Alaska, and has been showing her art locally since the age of eighteen. Kelsey went on to study drawing at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, and graduated with an art studio degree in 2010.
Most recently, Kelsey has created a series of self portraits with graphite on rag paper. In this collection of work, Kelsey investigates the human form as a vessel to communicate emotion and consciousness. In her drawings, she uses her own body to convey her internal reality, projecting her insecurity, courage, anger, and passion. In this intimate discovery of mind and body, the artist exposes part of her world, revealing herself to facilitate dialogue and communication.
Kelsey's work will be on display Friday Dec 2 from 5-9pm and Saturday Dec 3 from 11-4 pm.
