Winter Open Studios: Kelly DeFayette

Kelly DeFayette is a Bay Area colorist who works on wood panels with a high gloss finish. Shapes vary from the traditional to irregular and tessellating polygons. The shape of the panel informs the materials used, with taped angles and lines spray painted on, to acrylic and graphite gestural tangles. Color is the focus and the intersection of the craft of the object and the intention of the painting is the result. You can see more of Kelly’s work by visiting her at Norton Factory’s Winter Open Studios on Saturday December 6 from 4 – 9pm.
