NEW YORK, NY.- Gagosian Gallery presents Mike
Kelley’s “Horizontal Tracking Shots,” his first show in New York devoted
entirely to painting.
Evoking painting as a series of experiences akin
to the movie camera gliding through space, capturing action as it goes, Kelley
has devised a spatial push-pull effect through the arrangement of large
polychrome panel paintings and smaller framed canvases. In the untitled colored
reliefs, individual colors pop or recede in relation to each other. The colors
of the flat support panels are determined by key colors in the organically
shaped panels that are attached to them. On  view through 23
December, 2009.
