“Beat 004”
by Kelvy Bird

Kelvy Bird is a painter and graphic facilitator based in Somerville, MA. Her paintings are exhibited in the greater Boston area and are in private and corporate collections in the U.S. and Europe. Of her series in this issue, she writes, “By exploring my own interior landscapes, I seek to wrap my heart around the complexities of our times and induce reflection. Beats are bite-sized rhythmic elements of the psyche, and Pulses, bursts of presence. They aim to convey the truth that our realities can both trap and free us, depending on our orientation.”
