Five of my smoke drawings: Separation from Instinct, Meiosis, Vagina, Formally Winged, and Elevation were photographed and enlarged by Gotham Studios in NYC for Tai Shan Condo’s permanent collection in China. I was originally contacted by Indiewalls for a commission to duplicate these smokes but the agreement turned to reproductions. Indiewalls paid for the cost of this production (including framing and shipping) and I was paid $150 for licensing one print of each. As well, Indiewalls will be selling three different sizes of the above titles so visit their site if you would like to purchase a high quality/high resolution print: http://indiewalls.com/kelleybrannon
Indiewalls is an artist centered online gallery featuring local NYC artists/art. They will be giving me 50% of all sales made; this is extremely fair for selling artwork in NYC.
Despite my requests, I don’t think Indiewalls will be giving me the digital files of the smokes they paid to be photographed (hey, a girl can dream); however, one of the guys sent me documentation of the smoke prints in their massive scale. As well, I will be receiving photo documentation of them in their China location when they are installed.
Separation from Instinct
From 2012, new 'About' coming soon. In the meantime, please enjoy this nostalgia from my life five years ago:
I am an artist, writer, researcher, filmmaker, photographer, playwright, actor, and director in Ridgewood, Queens. I know that might seem like a lot of things to be so I should say I experiment in a variety of disciplines and mediums; concepts and absurdities. I studied in The Studio for Interrelated Media at Massachusetts College of Art. I moved to the area in June 2010 after graduating.
Since moving to NYC I've been feeling pulled back to my first loves: writing and theater; and the surreal, emotional, and abstract. I am also very involved with radical politics and I'm particularly interested in blending internal and external structures. I wrote a semi-surreal one act play called "The Rootless: A Play About America" last year which divulged the madness of capitalism and was performed at The Producer's Club with Love Creek Productions. I recently wrote another one act play called "The Thousand Lives of a Nomad" which is a story about the task, escape, and intrigue of continually making new lives in different places. The story is told through the lens of a 33 year-old woman originally from Finland and now residing in Brooklyn. It's staged to be a "live animation" of sorts and, personally I think it's both funny and thoughtful.
On-going projects include a constant evolving series of smoke drawings, a documentary about the business behind social media and Facebook; hope of rekindling my love affair with large format photography, and a perpetual mid-life crisis...
