Kelley consciously presents a nexus of works whose similar surface treatments and presentation inevitable evoke Modernist painting history. Emi Fontana writes: Popularly known as the master of exercises in garbage style, Kelley is in reality Mr. Clean. He situates his output within a wider system, that of recent Modernist art history, appropriating Modernisms structures, acting from within but without exercising the appropriational coldness common to the gestures of many American artists of his generation. 53 images present Kelleys most recent works in vivid color.
