Profile

Kelli Anne MacConnell, Printmaker

My main focus as an artist is making lino and woodcut relief prints.
People ask, “Why a print, why not a painting?” Not only do I enjoy the act of using tools to shape something, but also it’s the surprise factor, a mystery that unfolds. There are a lot of unpredictables involved and the spontaneity of the process demands energy, improvisation, gesture, expressiveness and directness. My current body of work focuses on the Pacific Northwest Landscape. These prints are of the expansive and diverse environment that is Oregon. With the simple use of line, and contrast of black and white, I strive to create exhilarating compositions inspired by the natural world.
