Playing with light and shadow, Kelly Tunney sees what is not there. Or, rather, she sees what we do not. Her photographic compositions shimmer with shape and color that take the viewer by surprise, and the images reflect the inherent creativity in the mundane. Using fine quality Hahnemühle paper, Tunney's photographs take on a crisp quality that is especially suitable for her fresh, artistic arrangements and accentuate her ability to capture shades of light not obvious to the naked eye. The artist often works with text, letters, and language to add a further dimension to her works; the effect adds a conceptual facet to the natural aesthetic. The compositions are balanced and filled with harmony, yet emit an electrifying vibe not to be underestimated. It is in this way that Tunney best elucidates a world which is simultaneously elusive and accessible.
