Kelin Perry’s work cultivates reverence for the discarded, unseen and forgotten. She uses mainly found materials discovered on the side of the road, around neglected urban buildings and railroad tracks. Her work seeks to maintain authenticity by manipulating what she finds as little as possible, letting the materials speak for themselves. Perry strives
to use these elements to translate her vision of the world we live in and honor the unseen symbolically and literally.
Much of Perry’s current work speaks to her deep roots growing up as a woman in the South.
