Kick-Ass Chicks: Kaelin Kost
Illustrator and Textile Design student Kaelin Kost does not only make amazing work, but has some of the coolest style we’ve seen. Using painting and fashion as inspiration, her pieces have a fun and feminine feeling that make us want to have them all over our walls. Check out our interview with Kaelin after the jump.

Untitled (Perfect Lovers) 1991. Clocks, paint on wall.
Untitled (Perfect Lovers) consists of two clocks, which start in synchronisation, and slowly, inevitably fall out of time due to the failure of the batteries and the nature of the mechanism. In a moving comment on his personal experiences, the piece refers to Gonzalez-Torres’ HIV positive partner Ross Laycock, and his slow decline and inevitable death due to AIDS. The clocks act as two mechanical heartbeats; representative of two lives destined to fall out of sync, and holds a poignant poetry about personal loss and the temporal nature of life.
“Don’t be afraid of the clocks, they are our time, time has been so generous to us…We conquered fate by meeting at a certain time in a certain space…we are synchronized, now forever. I love you.”
