Gwenneth Barth



Cheryl Kelley's photorealistic oil paintings of classic automobiles emphasize the sensuality of the vehicles and reveal their underlying feminine qualities.

A deeper inspection reveals a more intricate narrative playing in the shadows and reflections of the automotive surface. By exposing the world behind and beyond the vehicle, Cheryl explores the connections and contrasts between them and their surroundings.
