Mike Kelley Timeless Painting

Late multi-media artist Mike Kelley is known for dismantling Western hierarchies of contemporary art and culture. His oeuvre primarily deals with notions of everyday life and is often marked by raw materials found at flea markets. He utilizes the materiality of these forgotten goods to break boundaries between high and low culture and critique normative aesthetic models.
The latest show honoring the artist, 'Mike Kelley Timeless Painting' at Hauser and Wirth, exhibits works from various series spanning more than 15 years. The exhibition emphasizes Kelley’s exploration of color through the medium of painting and his diverse artistic breadth. The works included also highlight themes like the interplay between the sacred and the profane. A must see for Kelley fans yearning for a taste of the late artist's creativity.
