Overwhelmed: A Solo Exhibition by Jordanna Kelly


The D’Aguilar Art Foundation presents OVERWHELMED, a solo exhibition by Jordanna Kelly. Kelly transforms the gallery space into an immersive installation, weaving painting-assemblages together with trails of hundreds of painted paper dots. As in Kelly's last solo exhibition, Bugs, Blessings & Barriers, she uses the intricate paper pieces as individual works and also assembles and layers them to build the larger installations. The repetition and layering creates a landscape that appears both macro and micro; resembling terrariums, looking through a microscope or something more universal. Kelly's says of the works, “I wanted to create these environments – these little worlds – to be all-enrapturing, so when the viewer looks at the work, they are mesmerized by the many things that are going on. I want their eyes to bounce from patterns, to levels, to layers.”

Jordanna Kelly is a multimedia artist who uses ephemeral figurative patterns to create delicate assemblages. She won the Central Bank art competition in 2016 and she is currently the Creative Arts Studio and Gallery Manager at Baha Mar Art Studios.
