About

Robert Kelly is influenced by Bauhaus artists from Mondrian to Klee, merging hints of the historical with the contemporary. Painting on a variety of mediums, his work explores mark-making that often incorporates materials from his travels, such as vintage posters and printed antique paper. Robert’s paintings have been likened to palimpsests and his method has been described as building “on inhabited ground, layering materials, documents, and signs, covering them, wiping out their beauty, nearly, but allowing something of the labor and their languages to persist.” Robert Kelly lives and works in New York. He received his BA from Harvard University in 1978 and has exhibited nationally and internationally since 1983. His work is included in many public and private collections, including The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Brooklyn Museum, The Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Fe, Milwaukee Art Museum, Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, and The McNay Art Museum.
