Press Update

The ongoing success of Kelly Richardson’s Orion Tide at Birch Libralato and Legion at the Albright-Knox Gallery has prompted broad critical response.

Blouin ARTINFO, Kelly Richardson’s Portent is Having an Effect by Sky Goodden
"Richardson is gaining momentum with a practice both popular and deeply thoughtful. Her filmic work orients itself around apocalyptic cinema (informed by science fiction and B-movie horror films, among so much else), and is anchored in real-time animation while its disquieting subjects signal a world laid to waste."

The Toronto Star, Contact Festival: Kelly Richardson’s Orion Tide by Murray Whyte
"Richardson’s gorgeous, absorbing video works are at once chilling, visceral and campily absurd."

CANADIANART, Kelly Richardson Talks Sci-Fi Futures, Life on Mars and Mariner 9 by Rosemary Heather
"Richardson talks about the origins of Mariner 9, our fascination with life on Mars, and what that might mean for the future of life on Earth."

NOW Magazine, Kelly Richardson: How I got the shot by David Jager
"These fantastic yet strangely credible visual worlds seem to mimic the inevitable blending of digital simulacra into our daily lived experience."

The Buffalo News, Kelly Richardson’s ‘Legion’ sends a distress signal from the future by Colin Dabkowski
"A disquieting mixture of fear, awe and nervous energy pours from the video work of Kelly Richardson, the Canadian artist who has turned her preoccupation with the future of the planet into a series of stunning and sometimes terrifying landscapes."
