Kelsey Henderson


Kelsey Henderson's work is raw and somewhat visceral. Her paintings are brutally realistic (some of them look like edited photos), exposing and embracing flawed subjects - bruises, scars and an alluring lack of perfection painted by a pale palette that explores the limbo between the emotional and the physical in these intimate oil portraits. This artist was born in Massachusetts in 1982 and currently lives and works in Brooklyn.

  1. Gente, só na terceira imagem que eu percebi que eram desenhos e não fotos hahaha. Todos bem lindos, mas a primeira é a mais bonita.

  2. Imagens destas, com técnicas que acentuam a crueza do assunto fazem-me torcer o nariz e rejeitar um bocado. Têm aí algumas pessoas que me fazem lembrar as figuras humanas da Paula Rego x)

  4. A LUZ!!!! A luz nestas pinturas é surpreendente, é daquelas coisas que a mim me faz sempre tremer fisicamente, quando um artista consegue dar-me a ver uma luminosidade brutal através da pintura, e é tão mas tão raro conseguir-se este nível de luz quase luz branca, tipo sol do meio dia...

  12. Thank you for sharing these images, they are so very raw and immediately grab your attention. The second image is absolutely my favorite, I initially mistook it for a photograph. It is such a simple picture of a simple subject that in turn becomes extraordinary. I'm following you now and looking forward to more.
