Overview

This body of work is Kelly Grace’s most cinematic and narrative to date. Grace explores the concept of telling a chronological story through several paintings, using scale, placement and spacing to convey the movement and progression of a scene. A smaller scale work will invite the viewer to come closer and experience the intimacy of the story, while a larger scale scene will force viewers to step back and experience the story more objectively. Grace uses her influence of cinema, graphic novels and story boarding to portray works in a similar way. The same characters appear in multiple works to suggest a congruent story. The Scenic Route is Kelly Grace's divergence and detour from her previous solo exhibitions. It's the road with more picturesque scenery, the alternate path, the long way around.
