Kelly Richardson is a Canadian artist, who lives and works in the North East of England.
Responding to a number of ideas and influences, from natural catastrophe to the sublime, the eerie and sometimes terrifying nature of her recent work is intentional, serving to consume and even threaten her viewers. She often refers to the co-existence and tensions that exist between man and nature, allowing viewers to contemplate the nature of this relationship, which she claims is rarely one of mutual benefit.
Richardson has exhibited at a host of museums and public institutions, both within the UK and internationally, including solo shows at the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art , Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal , as well as upcoming exhibitions at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the Contemporary Art Gallery Vancouver. She has also participated in group exhibitions at galleries such as the Art Gallery of Ontario , Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden  and Centre Georges Pompidou .
