Kel Parsons

Kel Parsons is a fourth-year visual arts student at Memorial University’s Corner Brook campus in Newfoundland and Labrador focusing primarily on sculpture, textile, and photo-based art. As a lifetime Obsessive-Compulsive-Disorder-Haver, Kel utilizes their art practice as exposure therapy and as a way to explore the icky and grotesque contrasted against professional, curated, or censored spaces. Kel has a complicated relationship with garbage and germs and, through mixed media art and found materials, attempts to not only heal this but also to subject others to the detailed or exaggerated grossness that they deal with daily.
