Kelly Newcomer draws inspiration from emotional fantasies that humans create with their machines. Her colorful, painterly works on paper and her ceramic figures are inspired by the non-dystopian potential of our shared future on earth. Her work is influenced by theorist Donna Haraway, “Technology is not neutral. We're inside of what we make, and it's inside of us. We're living in a world of connections — and it matters which ones get made and unmade.” (The Cyborg Manifesto, 1984). Based in Minneapolis, Kelly Newcomer has exhibited widely and also licenses her work as a commercial illustrator.
