About Kelly O'Brien

About the artwork

Play With Fire No. 52 is an original paper sculpture by Kelly O'Brien.

Materials and narrative play important roles in Kelly’s work. She works primarily with paper, attracted to its paradoxical qualities of ephemeral strength. Even when manipulated in seemingly destructive ways – scoring, burning, sewing into, tearing, repairing – what emerges is often more interesting and beautiful than the original form. She is interested in how her materials can transform and reinvent themselves into something new, not unlike an adult who continues to learn and grow – coming full circle in her work from the earlier career.
