drkrm is pleased to announce the West Coast debut of acclaimed New York photographer and artist Kelsey Bennett. The exhibition HONEYMOON PHASE, will be on view from May 11 through June 1, 2013 with an Artist reception on Saturday, May 11 from 7-10pm. Regular gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday 12-6 pm, Sundays 12-4 pm and by appointment.

Since 2010 artist and photographer Kelsey Bennett has had four solo exhibits in NYC and has received vast critical praise from the arts and culture world. Vanity Fair notably lauded her surreal approach, while BULLETT Magazine hailed her as one of the most exciting new visual artists around. After her last exhibition Tony Bennett: Portrait of an Artist at The Morrison Gallery (2012), The Wall Street Journal raved in a feature on Bennett that her impressive portfolio “far exceeds her years.” 

Bennett’s official West Coast debut, HONEYMOON PHASE will showcase a retrospective of Bennett’s work over the past four years as well as never before seen pieces. The exhibition will run the spectrum from downright surreal images to breathtakingly intimate portraits of fellow artists and iconic musicians such as Amy Winehouse, Lady Gaga, and the James Brown impersonator Black Velvet among others.

Kelsey Bennett will also be making her fine arts debut in New York City with BOREGASM; an exhibition and collaboration with conceptual artists B.Thom Stevenson at Fig.19 Gallery in the Lower East Side.
