Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery / Rutledge Building

Kirk Fanelly
paper collage
48 x 31 in


A Charlotte native, Kirk Fanelly’s work incorporates the people and surroundings of his everyday world. He creates images that lead the viewer around familiar corners to discover tableaux that may first appear unexpected or discordant, but at subsequent glances evoke shared emotions or experiences. Fanelly desires an image to continually pose questions to both the viewer and himself over time, but to never become so complicated it causes us to retreat in frustration.
