Kelly's Kiss

Kelly Kazmierski's avatar Kelly Kazmierski

A textured collage created entirely of 16,002 pieces torn from hundreds of recycled magazines, 'Kelly's Kiss' is an inspired expression and interpretive reproduction of a masterpiece. Over the course of 2 1/2 years, every tiny piece, most measured by the millimeter, first had to be discovered and painstakingly created - each torn just the right way - before being positioned, layer by layer, and permanently glued in place. The final work, measuring 4' x 4' (6' x 6' framed) is easily mistaken as an oil painting. Yet upon the realization of the actual medium employed, each admirer's expression brightens in awe, wonderment and true appreciation.
