COPYRIGHT 2017 @ KELLY MACKENZIE SINCLAIR

"My practice, my politics and my life are deeply intertwined. I work from my own personal history, exploring my childhood, my relationships, my experiences with sexual violence and my relationship with food and my body. I find this work in deeply embedded in the political and sociological issues that have shaped these experiences, including how I experience these things as a woman, as someone with various mental and physical disabilities and as a fat person. Drawing, writing, book making, giving, destruction and remaking are all key processes in the work. Materials and scale are chosen piece by piece, these choices being driven by a mixture of instinct, awareness of the audience and what memory or concept is being worked with. Influences span the visual arts, music, writing and activism, including the work of Tracey Emin, Sarah Kane, Amanda Palmer and Laurie Penny."
