Julius Caesar presents a new series of works by Kelly Kaczynski completed over the last two years. This project began with the invitation of fellow artist Stan Shellabarger to work on a printmaking project of her own design. In approaching the work, Kaczynski decided to continue the use of the stage, a form they have been addressing in sculpture and installation for a decade now.
