"These pieces attempt to capture the stillness and beauty of the pastoral scene. In my work, this is accomplished through the layering of paint; thinned and varnished, scumbled and dripped. It is an involved process. The balance between the activity of the application and the coherence of the surface is delicate but I think contributes to the depth and mystery of the pieces. The images are concrete, but should disintegrate as the viewer approaches, revealing the abstract soul within."

"Serenity." Oil on canvas, 24 X 72
Native California artist, Kelly Viss is one of our most sought after artists. She studied at Cal State Stanislaus and is inspired by impressionist painters such as Corot. Her work is seemingly simple, yet extremely detailed and intricate. She creates pieces that are as visually appealing as they are emotionally stimulating. She composes her works using a series of paint dots; creating a stark contrast between the bright and muted hues, shadows and instances of light. Kelly emulates the beauty of nature in her unique landscapes and still lifes.
Kelly's craft has been displayed coast to coast, from Beverly Hills to Washington DC. Her work is extremely popular and sells out very quickly. Don't miss out on the opportunity to experience Kelly Viss's phenomenal artwork!

Compare Kelly's work with Corot

19th century artist Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot inspired many over the forthcoming 100 years, including Picasso and Degas. Claude Monet once said of Corot: "There is only one master here—Corot. We are nothing compared to him, nothing." Corot is considered one of the top masters of landscape painting. He executed many landscape scenes with natural light and mysterious tones in plein-air style. His innovation in landscapes is evident today in Kelly Viss's work. Her application of paint in a controlled, yet capricious manner illustrates the evolving history of art.
