Kelly O’Connor addresses central themes that include gender, feminism and family. Her work combines memory, fantasy and fiction, often drawing from Western folklore and the use of iconic characters. In her collage works, O’Connor juxtaposes candy-colored surfaces that are almost sickly sweet with papers sampled from vintage record covers. The appropriated images are drawn from films, advertising and magazines, as well as amusement park and travel memorabilia, from the 1950’s and 1960’s, a period rich in American stereotypes. Much of O’Connor’s work is about exposing the realities behind the public façades of these icons as well as the society that they represent.
