Working in oil, spray paint, and collage, Todd Kelly creates geometric, painterly and textured paintings. He often extrapolates successive degrees of abstraction from an initial figurative approach, such as a still-life or old-master painting. The same sized canvases are meant to hang in groups that can be endlessly rearranged, and interact in unexpected ways that create a sort of puzzle imagined by the viewer, resulting in a post-structuralist approach wherein the viewer’s journey supersedes the creator’s intent.
