Kelsey Shultis

 

Kelsey’s work largely explores the tenuous stability of life.  She represents the beings/objects/environments that we hold with such significance and use to define our lives, and their inevitable transitions to disorder and termination.  Her works create a dynamic record of permanent transitions.

Kelsey has had solo and group exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Princeton, Ann Arbor and Detroit. Her work resides in private and public collections throughout the United States.
