Kelsey Livingston is a visual artist who utilizes anthropomorphic, narrative imagery. Her art uses metaphor to describe the tenuous relationship one has to their own mortality. The work describes, by proxy, how she deals with life and death from a broader cosmic perspective. Her compositions show birds, bones, eggs, and the photographs from the Hubble telescope of the visible universe in combination to reflect the connection to the stars who gave up their lives; resulting in life as we know it.
She is earned her MFA in Studio Art from Louisiana State University, and her BFA from California State University Long Beach. She participates in international arts programs, and has shown abroad in Italy, Japan, India and South Korea. She has been awarded grants and scholarships through the Joan Mitchell Foundation, The Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge, and others.
