Also on display are John Kelly
’s vast, geometrically stylized prints of stony crags rising from the famously dramatic Irish Sea and Antarctic icebergs. Kelly, who has worked in a number of mediums and holds passports from England, Australia, and Ireland, is inspired by the landscapes of artists like Paul Henry, Brett Whiteley, and Fred Williams—painters whose simple depictions of the natural world were capable of communicating vast and existential concerns. The series itself, says
Kelly, began when he became fascinated by a modest Paul Henry painting in the foyer of a hotel and immediately began working on a homage.
