As a child of immigrants, assimilating and culture shock come naturally as breathing. Accepting and having the American taste for fast food came as a hallmark of socio-economic assimilation, a badge of honor. An example of this “badge of honor” can be found in the “Happymeal” marketed to children by offering toys and junk food.

The series Baldessaring Baldessari is part of a larger body of work that critically explores the relationship and recognition of influence. I find that by making portraits of the influencer, often in their own style, I can come to terms with the influence, take what I want from it, and move on.

Kelly Lynn Jones uses her studio as the infrastructure to document an evolving process of making, breaking down, remaking, and repeating. Her “work space” exists next to the “designated art space”. The distinction between her studio and a finished art piece has blurred, yet are still contingent on one another. The action of developing a new physical situation and having to negotiate a conversation between process, place and object is what Jones is attempting to attain. She uses her personal landscape mediated through found images on the internet, by remaking objects found in photos and isolates them within a three dimensional space and ultimately bringing them back to an image. This slippage between the semblances of the real, authorship, and personal vs. public are highlighted through her process of making. www.kellylynnjones.com
