"I’m fascinated by the way different types of mud and minerals, when mixed with a special kind of tree sap and honey, can do things on their own that sometimes seem magical."
Kelly Falzone Inouye has been using watercolor to explore pop-culture for over 15 years. Her studio work originated through conversations with co-workers and friends about why we remembered so many trivial details from old television shows, yet frequently forgot more important things like social security numbers or impending deadlines.
Kelly has completed public art projects for the San Francisco Arts Commission and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Her work has been featured in solo exhibitions throughout the Bay Area and in group exhibitions nationwide. Kelly’s paintings have appeared in The San Francisco Chronicle, New American Paintings, Watercolor Magazine and other publications. She is also the founder and director of Irving Street Projects, a residency and exhibition program in the Outer Sunset district of San Francisco.
She is a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute (MFA 2008) and UC San Diego (BA 1998). Her work is represented by Marrow Gallery in San Francisco, CA.
