This Knot, This

Kelly Kaczynski with Serafin Kaczynski

Through photography and drawing, this new work looks at nearness.

I decided to use the month of August to think about how to make work in my life. How to make work without framing or articulating prior to what unfolds and while unfolding. How to make work that is not the work I was making before. Perhaps unsurprisingly, what developed is a partial document of my relationship with my daughter. Perhaps even more unsurprising, it is a literal view of the distance between us and our intentions.

I am aware that this work categorizes itself historically with the mother and child, in formation and in representation. My interest, while absolutely as mother with a child, is in the individual together and apart.
