Kelly Reemsten: Where Femininity Meets Power

Kelly Reemsten: Where Femininity Meets Power

Kelly Reemsten is best known for her dramatic paintings of the modern day woman. While the women are often stunningly dressed in couture fashion and exquisite heels, you’ll find they are often undertaking traditionally viewed masculine tasks. Kelly’s art is a beautiful visual expression showcasing women in a powerful and empowering manner. Her lovely juxtaposition of rugged, inanimate objects against soft femininity highlights the range embodied by today’s modern woman. Even through her technique, Reemsten finds a way to further express this duality through rough mediums with graceful strokes. To further engage her audience, her portraits are faceless, leaving room for the female onlooker to envision herself as the lead role. This strategy is a powerful, thought-provoking and empowering way to deliver a message while simultaneously inviting her audience to become a part of her art.  We love and celebrate her art; a world where the desire to be powerful does not negate the desire to be feminine. We applaud the celebration of this duality, are continuously inspired by her expression and highly suggest a power walk to one of her gallery openings…. in heels, of course.
