Claire Kelly’s work examines the human connection with animals and their larger relationship to our world and environment. She has created a series of “fantastic microcosms that bring a consciousness to their decorative status,” she says. “My sculptures tell a story about the fragility and conservation of these small worlds as well as describing their role in a grander scheme.
