“To describe my work would be to say that it is both a search and a self-healing effort. Moreover, it is the navigation of the mother and child relationship existing under the umbrella of autism spectrum disorder, a disorder that entails curious characteristics. These include communication barriers, social deficits, obsessively repetitive actions, steadfast meltdowns, periods of erratic sleep and wandering scares. Inevitably these result in relentless tests to the human spirit that begin to materialize as personal narrative within large paintings, embroidery works and small-scale paintings.”
Kelly Reyna was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas. She holds an BFA in Studio Art/Painting from Texas Tech University, that she received in 2011. In 2015, Reyna attended two residencies through Plymouth University - Transart Institute, in Berlin and in New York.
