Lot Report


Brian Kelley thematically returns to images of roads, pathways, waterfalls, cedars, and rivers, exploring these images in various media, and from various vantage points. Working in familiar territory, he looks out to the horizon, into the dark trees, or up at the waterfall. He is comfortable with the shapes, the colours and the feel of the Northern bush where old memories and fresh impressions merge on the canvas. His energy and enthusiasm is derived from playfully reducing all visual imagery to primary lines, patterns and colours.

Kelley’s diverse background includes coordinator at the Lincoln Center Graphics Exhibition, New York; graphic designer and photographer at Robert Anders Design, New York; instructor of printmaking, drawing and bookbinding at the Artists’ Workshop, Toronto; Director of Etching at Open Studio, Toronto; and artist-in-residence at the Cape Dorset Printshop, Baffin Island (Nunavut).
