Anthony Kelly is an artist based in Dún Laoghaire, Dublin, Ireland whose practice involves sonic and visual approaches to making his work. This includes painting, drawing, sound recording, sculpture, sound installation, film & video, and improvised sound performance. Although diverse in construction, his work chiefly concentrates on the shifting and fragmentary nature of sensory experience. To explore this he uses the discarded or overlooked aspects of the world around us which he enlarges and amplifies to create his work. His creative work frequently involves collaboration. Anthony has received funding from the Arts Council of Ireland and Culture Ireland. His work has been exhibited widely in Ireland and abroad.
Recent projects and exhibitions include Channel 0, Terminal 08 gallery, Gorzow, Poland; Strange Attractor, Waterworks Museum, Boston; Floating Point .
