Kelsey Ashe



Exploring the symbology of cultures, both ancient and modern, local and global, Ashe seeks resonances from previous era’s; sensing traces of stories or beliefs from place, to perceive perceptions or concerns for contemporary culture. Ashe’s practice-led research has traversed print and illustration, textiles and cloth, photography and film, performance and painting, with each new idea finding its unique expression of form. Kelsey Ashe has Exhibited Nationally and Internationally, including at the iconic Sedona Arts Centre in Arizona USA, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh UK, Site: Brooklyn Gallery New York USA, Barrett Art Centre New York USA, the Katonah Museum of Art New York, the WA Maritime Museum Fremantle AUS and the National Gallery of Victoria Melbourne AUS.
