Kelsey Cruz-Martin

My residency at the garage proved to be a fantastic opportunity which enabled me to further explore ideas and resolve unfinished work that had been knocking around my studio since lockdown began.


The whole experience provided time and space to think through ideas and consider the installation of the work – something I often struggle with in my small studio.


During socially-distanced studio visits with Caraboo members and my brb… mentor, we discussed material processes and the ideas underpinning my practice. I gained a great deal of insight from these conversations – valuable perspectives which continue to influence my work.
