Robert Kelly “Recent Works”
March 25 / April 22, 2006

These recent set of paintings extend Kelly’s formal vocabulary by turning to another suggestive layer of object-content in the overlays: the symbolic function of language. The letters found on the paper (billboard paper from the 1950’s) used as the base for the paintings are freed from their previous description by being taken on as purely compositional units.
