Hello again everyone,
A friend of mine paid a visit last week. We were discussing different types art and artists who we like. Mike Kelly’s name came up in the conversation. My friend exclaimed, “I love that guy’s stuff. I don’t understand it, but I love it.” I had to admit that I really didn’t understand his work either. I first heard about Mike Kelly through an art collector friend who I correspond with regularly. I plowed through plenty of images of Kelly’s work, but never really investigated what was behind it.
Anyway, I had some free time yesterday, so decided to use it to learn and hopefully become inspired. I found an artist talk where Mike Kelly’s work is broken down and explained by the artist himself. It starts off a little slow during the introduction and takes about 10 minutes to really pick up, but if you can get through that, I think the talk becomes very interesting.
If you have ever been curious and have a little time to spare, check it out
Until next time,
