Golden Promises

by Kelley Hensing

Part of a series I’m working on using nature and symbolism to convey psychological themes. This one focuses on truth, deception and our perceptions of intention.

I’ve used gold leaf paint for the teeth- (I tried to convey this through one of my side image photos). They are ‘golden’ and have their own shine in the light.

Vintage frame, measures about 14 inches round. I’ve left the frame ‘as found’ with it’s original paint and scuffs, rather than covering over it. With the theme (and teeth) of the piece I liked the little imperfections.

Bio: Kelley is inspired by the mysterious. She grew up in a house by the woods surrounded by animals and wilderness, so many of her themes bring together strange nature, mortality and spirituality. Using archetypes of characters from folklore and myth as well as her own stories, she enjoys portraying unusual tales that symbolize our hopes and fears.

Kelley earned her MFA from the School of Visual Arts and her BFA from the Rhode Island School of design. Her favorite mediums are oils on wood and pencil on paper, and she loves to create her work by hand. Her favorite genres range from gothic and steampunk to classic fantasy and legends. Traveling is her only other passion equal to a career in art and is a vital component in inspiring her work.
