"Surrender" is a portfolio featuring a sampling of works by emerging mixed-media artist Emily Kaelin.
Kaelin holds an MFA from the Burren College of Art, located in Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare, Ireland, and a BFA from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in Denver, CO, USA. She has exhibited in Ireland and throughout the United States.
Using paint, fibers, sound, and drawing to investigate the concepts of desire, fear, and transcendence, she explores themes of seduction and revulsion, creating work that evokes a highly emotional and visceral response from the viewer. Using the female condition as a starting point, Kaelin nonetheless strives towards evoking a universally human and melancholic resonance in her work.
