Los Angeles Art Association is proud to present a solo exhibition by Isabella Kelly-Ramirez. The exhibition open on Saturday, January 24 at Gallery 825 with an opening reception from 6-9 PM. The works will be on view through February 20, 2015.
Isabella Kelly-Ramirez’s new work, All the Missing Pieces will feature an installation of nearly 30 recent collages, curated into an intimate installation of self-reflection. The work showcases Kelly-Ramirez’s surreal collage portraits that serve as whimsical re-imaginings of mainstream media imagery. Her skillful manipulation of magazine images via a hand cut collage method create psychological portraits of iconic stature. All the Missing Pieces is the title of the featured wallpaper that is digitally printed from a large-format hand cut collage. This constellation of hundreds of tiny images, serve as the talisman for the collage character portraits. They represent all of the material objects that must be purchased in order to fill the void. The altar of “ego” contains a bejeweled assortment of personal boudoir products, a medicine cabinet for beauty.
