Kelie Bowman hails from Florida and lives and works in Brooklyn, far away from her beloved beaches and Grouper fish sandwiches. Kelie Bowman's new paintings address the struggle to keep stability in one's life by way of the community. The idea of home is on her mind, as are the fragile moments of our existence. Subtle humor and violence creep into her soft and warm palate, giving a razor sharp edge to the work's gentle nature. Kelie is co-founder of Cinders, enjoys sushi, dance parties, and swimming outside in far away places. She received a BFA at the University of Florida, was a founding member of the Cloud Seeding Circus, and gave Bike Tours in Munich, Germany one summer.
