Painter Kelley Hensing creates surreal, narrative works with an antiquated feel. Her portraits of anachronistic characters — Victorian ladies, wood nymphs, carnival workers — are placed in ornate, wooden frames that add to their timeworn aesthetic. Hensing is getting ready to debut her latest body of work for her solo show, “The Animal Within,” at Last Rites Gallery in New York.
