From muted tones to vibrant colors, pen and ink drawings to paintings, Kelly Ording intentionally pushes the limits of minimalism and representation. She separates her paintings between abstracted landscapes and geometric abstractions, the former being intuitive and the latter being more intentional. The landscapes pull their palettes from the natural world, while the geometric pieces give Kelly the freedom to use bright and exuberant tones.

 Each piece begins with a dyeing process, setting up a composition based on the natural result of this process. Some papers or canvases are dyed by hand with large watercolor brushes and others are dip-dyed. Kelly’s process mimics natural occurrences, like the tides and the unstoppable passing of time which she constantly contemplates.

 “The past year has undoubtedly challenged our understanding of the passing of time.  My paintings explore the marking of time and question how one is able to register time in a visual way.” Kelly Ording

Artist ( Description ): 

Kelly Ording is an Oakland California based painter whose work encompasses a broad palette and a wide range of media. From muted tones to vibrant colors, pen and ink drawings to paintings, each piece intentionally pushes the limits of minimalism and representation. Employing simple repetition, geometric patterns and marking to evoke represented subjects to the viewer, Ording strikes the balance between representational and minimal compositions. Ording’s use of dyed canvas and paper takes the paintings beyond a purely abstract image by creating depth and nuance. In addition to exhibiting her paintings worldwide, Ording has numerous large-scale public works throughout the Bay area and internationally including San Francisco’s landmark Clarion Alley and Palega Park Recreation Center.
