As the writer and artist of a heroine's surreal trip via a haunting southern panorama, Kelli Scott Kelley finds the mastery of her craft and the powerful narrative skill of her paintings. Borrowing from Roman mythology, Jungian research, and the psychology of fairy stories, Kelley provides a narrative of relations disorder, atonement, and transformation.

Reproductions of her paintings -- mixed-media work done on repurposed old linens -- punctuate the story of Accalia, who's tasked with recuperating the hands of her father from the stomach of the swamp monster. Visually and metaphorically, Accalia's odyssey enchants and displaces as Kelley delicately balances the disquieting with the time-honored.

Rich in symbolism and expertly composed, Accalia and the Swamp Monster pulls readers into the actual realm via Kelley's chimerical imagery after which pushes them in the direction of the interior international of the unconscious. for this reason, Kelley's tale is followed by way of essays from Jungian analyst Constance Romero and artwork historian Sarah Bonner.

A fruits of approximately a decade of labor, introspection, and learn, Accalia and the Swamp Monster is either an entrancing show of Kelley's paintings and an confirmation of the transformative energy of fairy tales.
