A body of work highlighting dynamic presence. 

The elegance of world prototype motorcycle racing eternally unfolds in the curves and straights of each MotoGP race. The riders are timed and the laps are counted, yet my investigation looks beyond traversing points in space to the deeper states of being; uncovering the intuition, rhythm, and reflection revealed in an alternative duration. 

Prototype motorcycle rider and several times MotoGP World Champion, Valentino Rossi, reveals a beautiful account of duration in his autobiography, "What If I Never Tried it,":

. . .When you're on the outside you see a totally different world. Your perception of speed is completely different and you can't understand how someone can handle a bike at certain super-fast speeds. But when you're actually on the bike, you have the opposite sensation. You have the impression that everything is happening in slow motion, that it's all far slower than it really is. That's because speed is something you learn to live with, something you get used to. And it's relative.


Within this body of artwork, I offer the concept of movement and a meditative gestural energy. As the ever evolving actions, reactions and forces unfold on a MotoGP track, I am inspired to investigate a creative becoming and a blurring of the physical into the ethereal. So far, the study has resulted in sculpture, prints and digital media with perhaps a focus towards future large scale installation. The captures are made using digital Hasselblad equipment. At times, manipulation in camera, such as panning is used and layers may be added in software, depending on the conceptual nature in the work. Medium format allows intense color, depth and clarity further lending itself to be reproduced for large scale works. It was a choice for me after ten years of working with a variety of digital full frame cameras.

Taking cues from Italian Futuristism, Minimalism, Light and Space Art, Site Specific Installation, Bergsonism, Phenomenology and Yoga Philosophy, I continue to contemplate clarity, beyond distractions and chaos, shifting towards one pointedness, eventually requiring the ability to navigate absolute space. The study began as an experiment in 2003, creating art from a three year skydiving journey, later displayed at what is now the Museum of Contemporary Art, Santa Barbara. Exiting an aircraft became familiar and I began to describe duration in the air as much longer than it actually measured. 

My current body of artwork aims to blend photography, sculpture and installation. It is meant to function as a way to explore intuition while reflecting on the journey of our human spirit, encompassing the visceral to the more subtle energetic attitudes that make up our presence. World prototype motorcycle racing is where my practice begins, yet my practice in yoga and sailing is equally as important, providing me with a philosophical jumping off point in which I can delve into lived experience and creative expression. For me, meditation in motion, as well as, acute awareness in an ever-changing environment is useful while unraveling notions of time. Ashtanga Yoga and sailing seem to make it possible for me to engage in self inquiry, working from the inside out. The activities then make it possible to relate to a rider on track, traveling at speeds up to and at times beyond 200mph. 

Why Patreon?  

My goal on Patreon is to bring this work to a broader audience while engaging in my local arts community of South Florida. I find Patreon an interesting platform where we can view the work, share insights and also take a look at the process behind the photography, sculpture and installation. Patreon support gives me the freedom necessary to further develop the project in research and production. I am looking forward to all the possibilities along the journey and happy to have you here. Patreon provides a great system to support the arts, giving directly to the creators and projects that you choose. I have prepared a variety of member levels with associated gifts for your patronage. I look forward to connecting with you.

Thank you!

Your member involvement makes the art possible. Below are some of the areas where our Patreon community will make an important impact. 


Travel

I attend at least one MotoGP race between April and November to gather new content and meet with the collaborative groups engaged in the project. Your pledge assists in transportation, airline tickets, accommodations and cultural activities in the region of a race. As patron support grows, I can plan to add a few more races to the calendar. Unfamiliar places will inspire new work. MotoGP travels to Europe, Asia, Australia, South and North America!

Equipment & Maintenance 

Over the last five years I have paid $20,734 on a loan for the Hasselblad H4D-40 with 35 and 100mm lenses. Your patronage will help pay a balance of $11,806 left on this loan. From that point, I am interested in upgrading into a Hasselblad H6D system and I would eventually like to consider Hasselblad’s aerial system for future projects. 

Studio Time

To self fund this project and keep up with day to day expenses, I have found freelance work outside of my art practice. My partner Bruce received a Captain’s license and I have found positions in hospitality, graphic design, Apple Retail and as a deckhand and mate aboard monohulls and catamarans. This year, Bruce and I strealined our efforts and began Blue Water Services Global. It is our base of operations, focusing on delivering yachts and new projects in the yacht chartering industry. There is a new found freedom in Blue Water Services. The deliveries are spread out enough, that I can work on the art. What I love about working in this way is that the sailing gives me a different perspective. I find it helpful to leave my usual space, my regular yoga practice and a daily routine; turning everything upside down on the open sea. My last delivery was just about thirty hours from Nassau, Bahamas to Ft Lauderdale. I was able to use some of my time off of watch to gather images that relate to the meditative aspects of the artwork and I would love to do more of this, then returning to a studio for production. The smaller trips complement the larger ones to the prototype motorcycle racing circuits. 

Services & Materials

This particular body of work has just passed a decade in the making. Your pledge helps bring the artwork to its next phase, including the printing on unique substrates, flexible OLED components, as well as, glass, crystal. metal, and carbon fiber supports for the installation work. In consideration of larger exhibitions, production and engineering support is a necessary service for particular spaces. Your support helps bring the art to life. 

I have managed to stay centered in developing the art as a body of digital images, writing and experiences with very little physical manifestation. Time to switch gears. I am grateful to all patrons who enjoy supporting creators to make projects possible!



Background


My work in MotoGP began in 2008 as a sculptural concept... The first iteration, Swarovski architectural components, curving under a twisted and cut translucent abstraction of motorcycle riders. Both were lit by a long electroluminescent strip carving through slices in the image.

After showing this work I wanted to create art that could exist in a city hosting a MotoGP event. A larger, more ambitious version of the kind of sculptural light installation I was making. The next few years challenged me in ways that I never dreamed possible. I loved the idea of airport art and I found interesting architectural spaces that could be viewed from the inside and outside, yet the project support necessary was more challenging than I imagined.

Next stop: Philips Lumiblade (now OLEDworks). This was an interesting phase to consider. I looked at some engineering samples and was invited to participate in a designer program but the expenses were just outside of my reach. I decided to let the idea of sculptural installation art go for a bit. Self funding the art could only take me so far and the grant and open call application rounds were not successful. I reevaluated my position, participated in a yoga apprenticeship and a two week Ashtanga intensive and came back to MotoGP the following year with a fresh perspective. I decided I needed to change the way I was approaching the work. I chose to explore medium format photography in 2013. Particularly, Hasselblad as I became aware of John Parker’s work using the equipment to photograph Breitling jets, air to air. Hasselblad eventually became interested in the work that I was doing in MotoGP and I was happy to explore future opportunities.

In 2009, I had listed Hasselblad as a future possibility in a proposal, regarding my work in MotoGP. I began my photography practice in the 90's with my Dad's Nikon, purchased a Minolta while working at a camera shop in my teens and thought I would continue photographic course work in college. That was until sculpture and ceramics took me by surprise and I left photography for a bit to develop a conceptual three dimensional practice. By graduate school in 2003, I dove into the digital world of Canon photography, I felt that it would be interesting to blend images with my studies in sculpture. I signed the Hasselblad lease in 2013. Medium format would provide a new depth in my artwork. By 2016, Hasselblad sent me their new H6D-50c for two weeks to share my story at Misano World Circuit, Marco Simoncelli. It was my first time to Italy, my first time to Europe! I had shared my work earlier with the H4D-40 on both the Hasselblad Blog and on Capture Integration’s website. A beautiful camera that came with me on four occasions, three times (one inaugural) to the Circuit of The Americas race in Austin, TX and one of the last times MotoGP raced at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Not only did I take this camera to the racetrack but I also brought it with me on a few yacht charter jobs to the Bahamas and exploring the waters in and around Miami Beach. I began to think about meditation and self observation reflected in the sea. I sold my first work of this kind on Miami Beach in an open call for art to 6080 Collins Avenue Beach House in 2015. I see this work in parallel to the art in motorcycle racing, considering notions of duration. It is a concept that I wish to explore further.

Moving into the next decade of artwork I imagine installations that are a hybrid of abstract medium format images and sculptural installation.

I have learned so much in the last ten years! 

All of it necessary with a great amount of perseverance resulting in both failure and success.

I look forward to connecting with you! Patrons make this project possible. Thank you for reading my story and thank you for your member support.


To an extraordinary journey ahead!

Yet the artist aims at giving us a share in this emotion, so rich, so personal, so novel, and at enabling us to experience what he cannot make us understand. This he will bring about by choosing, among the outward signs of his emotions, those which our body is likely to imitate mechanically, though slightly, as soon as it perceives them, so as to transport us all at once into the indefinable psychological state which called them forth. Thus will be broken down the barrier interposed by time and space between his consciousness and ours: and the richer in ideas and the more pregnant with sensations and emotions is the feeling within whose limits the artist has brought us, the deeper and the higher shall we find the beauty thus expressed. The successive intensities of the aesthetic feeling thus correspond to changes of state occurring in us, and the degrees of depth to the larger or smaller number of elementary psychic phenomena which we dimly discern in the fundamental emotion. 
- Henri Bergson, Time and Free Will

About


Kelly D Hudak lives and works on Miami Beach with her partner Bruce C. LaFollette. She is a photographer and conceptual artist. Kelly earned her MFA from University of California, Santa Barbara in 2004 and began showing electroluminescent light sculptures shortly after. She has dedicated ten years focusing on the world prototype motorcycle racing series, MotoGP. It is in the realm of motorsports where Kelly is developing new art and most recently worked with Hasselblad, creating content with their new H6D, during the race at Misano World Circuit, Marco Simoncelli in Italy.

Kelly’s practice is inspired by spatial navigation and a futuristic world view, while contemplating the meditative qualities of our being and perception of time. Three years of skydiving, as well as, her current involvement in yoga and sailing provide her with philosophical motivation to study the world’s best motorcycle riders, racing at extraordinary locations around the world. The body of work uncovers intuition and a creative expression that exists beyond balance and awareness in our conscious mind-scape. Two and Three dimensional pieces utilize methods of abstraction, integrating translucency, color and pattern masks with images related to the dynamic presence found in racing. To compliment this study of speed and duration, Kelly’s work off the track focuses on the intimate and immense regarding fleeting moments of oceanic travel and a yoga practice in the Ashtanga lineage. This study includes abstract images of the ocean’s mystifying layers, light trails of port traffic and the more subtle states of physical asana, pranayama and meditation. Kelly’s work, Passage, depicting a cruise ship at sunrise will be installed in Miami Beach hotel and residences, 6080 Collins Avenue, acquired through the Bakehouse Art Complex in Miami, Florida.

Towards the end of this year, Kelly moves into the next decade, invited to the International motorcycle racing circuit, MotoGP.
