Leslie Kell: Here We Go
Here We Go
Digital photo collage
Prints mounted on richly stained cradle boxes with a shiny resin overlay.
Title is inspired by the lyrics of “Road to Nowhere” by the Talking Heads.

This is definitely a transition piece, in fact I considered putting it in the new Come Closer Collection. But my loyalty to process won out…
The photography is a melding of a carnival fun house and forested creekside in Wimberley. The watery pathway leads to an open door (photo taken at the San Jose Mission in San Antonio).
Get to Know the Austin Artist:
The artworks I create are visual journeys that begin with my photography, which is digitally composed into the patterns of my designs. As the photos are layered and manipulated into the drawings; the imagery interacts to create the highlights, shadows, contours, and textures of the artwork and a surreal environment begins to emerge. The more you look, the more you see.
