Kelly Richardson is a visual artist whose work focuses on the restitution of the sublime from an ordinary or flawed moment, moments which are simultaneously absurd, hilarious, beautiful, sad, pathetic, lonely, futile, exciting. Richardson was born in Canada (1972) where she studied fine art at the Ontario College of Art & Design (AOCAD with honours) and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (MFA studies in media art). Recent exhibitions include Gwangju Biennale (Korea, 2004), Stills / Edinburgh Film Festival / New Media Scotland for DRIFT (Scotland, 2004), Art Gallery of Nova Scotia for Photopolis Photo Biennial (Canada, 2004) and Cornerhouse for Bigger Picture (UK, 2004). She lives and works in the UK. Further information can be found at
