Kelly Jelinek



[+] Bio | Comments |

As a child I spent most of my time with my nose in fairytale books. I absolutely marveled how the impossible was made possible in those stories: animals could talk, trees could move, and the most mundane of objects could become something magical and important. I wished that real life was like a fairytale.

 

This longing that I had as a child has stayed with me through the years, and I find that I am constantly trying to make "real life" more magical and extraordinary through the artwork that I create. The faux taxidermy art that I create is a great example of this: something traditional and commonplace is transformed into something new and exciting. I find that this quote from Edgar Allen Poe pretty much sums up everything that I am about: "There is no exquisite beauty... without some strangeness in the proportion."

 

Jelinek's sculptures have been collected throughout the United States and Europe.
