Lot Details

Highly influenced by modernist artists such as Malevich and Mondrian, the work of Robert Kelly explores the interplay of edges, angles, and reflective or opposing images through the employment of simple geometric form. Here, with a focus on nostalgia and history, Kelly incorporates the arabesque, a motif seen frequently in both Byzantine and Islamic Art, along with vintage paper and antique botanical drawings. Creating a tension between fragmented imagery and harmonious composition, Kelly’s work simultaneously masters and melds the ideals of early modernism and contemporary abstraction.
