Kelly Johnston

Chapel Hill, NC

Kelly Johnston was born 1991, Arlington VA. She received her  B.A. Anthropology, Trinity University, San Antonio TX in 2015 and a B.A. Studio Art, Trinity University, San Antonio TX, in 2015. Since 2010, Johnston has exhibited nationally. Her work explores inherent tensions between emotional and physical discomfort by using natural materials on large scales to create sculpture and installation, in hopes her viewers connect and address issues in their own lives. Johnston’s use of the human form can be seen as a common theme throughout her work, along with incorporating mixed media approaches in her work to create visceral environments.
