BEAUTY: Art--Kelly Louise Judd

Kelly Louise Judd shows her dark, Victorian-inspired artowrk on a website obliquely yet fittingly titled "Swan Bones Theater." Her paintings bring to mind visions of the Brothers Grimm, Tim Burton's "Sleepy Hollow" and the Black Forest-filled Brothers Quay film "Institute Benjamenta." Judd also works in soft sculpture to bring her gently ominous visions to life; her enchanting anthropomorphic figures are clothed in voluminous Victorian dresses, just like the subjects in her paintings.
