This exhibition by Kelsey Lynn Mayo delves into an investigation of how craft, art and technology influence each other. Kelsey, a multidisciplinary artist from New York, has found that their work is influenced by all three sectors and has noticed over their education and practise that there are a plethora of ways of working in the cross section. On this Arts Council England Grant, Kelsey has spent the latter end of 2021 and start of 2022 investigating age-old arts and craft techniques in combination with technology. Through this lens they explore similar themes that appear in their past work, of physical/mental health, gender and family ties to craft and art, all while exploring new combinations of processes in textiles, ceramics, glass and wood working.
