Kelley Mogilka’s figurative paintings and drawings center on capturing the elusive muse, a creative force that flows from brush to canvas. By working from a model, she looks for this inspiration in the subtle gestures, glances, or poses, which often evoke a presence that is both timeless and ephemeral. Her use of harmonious color and expressive brushwork ultimately reflects an interest in capturing the sitter’s internal state of being. Kelley was the recipient of the Pence Gallery’s Emerging Artist Award in 2022.
