Constantly inspired by her surroundings, Chelsea’s creative expression is an unraveling of lived experiences through an intimate exploration of painting and drawing. Living and working in Cape Town, South Africa, Chelsea’s practice has evolved into a physical response to memory; as if to find meaning through making.
This response takes shape as an expression of colour and movement using oil pastels and a combination of acrylic and oil paints, creating layers through the process of revealing and concealing. The intrigue is how different colours find their meaning by holding a nuance of understanding. In some instances the colours lend themselves to site specificity and location.
In 2022, Chelsea participated in two International Artist-in-Residence Programmes, one in Kenya’s Rift Valley and one in the village of Andore, India and was accepted into the Artist in Residence Programme in Oaxaca, Mexico.
“My work is an invitation to observe memory. To celebrate its beauty, complexity, and capacity to shape our individual and collective identities."
