Kelly Neidig draws inspiration from prehistoric art representations of astronomical events, her favorite cartoons, and quantum physics. Her works references recognizable forms. By contesting the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, she creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles. Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Kelly Neidig attended Penn State University. She graduated with a B.A. in Integrative Arts combining fine art and landscape architecture. She currently lives and works in Portland, OR. Neidig mainly works with acrylic paint on paper and canvas.
