ERIC KELLY III

ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONIST​

In his work, he deconstructs the American expression, its history, its ordinary lines, and its bounders, that are part of everyday culture.  His work addresses space assignment, the fragility of line dynamics, shape relations to subject matter and the underlying threads of form and structure that is expected.  The bold line establishes a dynamic surreal quality, suggests notions of excitement and freedom, and formally unifies the objects in each image; the lines provide clues to content and interpretation.  The aim of his paintings and pastel is to paint expressionistic images in an abstract style, and with non-realistic colors and shapes.  His images are fundamentally about form and revealing the visual eloquence that he sees images. 

 

Some of his recent group and solo exhibitions include show such as: Painting Now and Forever Part I, The Face of Change,  45 portraits of President Barack Obama at Lydia Meerick Moore  Gallery, Durham North Carolina; Behind the Brush, Los Angeles at The MD gallery ; Crossing the Line, Blue Museum of Art, Chicago James Stephens III; The Brinkley private gallery, Atlanta Ga; and JCCEO From One man to the Other, Birmingham Alabama. Other solo exhibitions were held at the Blue Coffee Gallery, the Talk of the Town Gallery, Black Wall Street Gallery and Kelly Gold Gallery in NC.  Published Books and DVDs and CD include: Art Anthology and Barack Obama the Face of Change. Three Poetry CDs and three other books, On a Hot, Hot Day, Twisting in the Rain and Affirmations and Thoughts for Life.
