The Fine Art World of Paul Kelley
“When humanity ceases to be
relevant, so too will art.”
"I hope that throughout my career I have been able to please many people with my paintings, and that my figurative art has been particularly pleasurable for people who understand that the qualities of sensual beauty that I instill in this art subject are just that. I have always regarded this work as a celebration of the female form and commentary on woman's commanding visual presence in our world, in addition to their humanity and intellect. I believe that it is important to appreciate beauty as an end in itself. It is as simple as being able to stop and regard the beauty of sunrise before a hectic day; and as complicated as overcoming our preconditioning to desire to see more than what we see. Allegory and metaphor exist in my artwork, but the beauty and grace of the female form in my artwork is intended to convey just that."
Welcome to 2016
It's a new year in what I still think of as a new century. The old "rules of the game", to the extent that they were rules and not misinformation, seem to have largely varnished for many people in the marketplace who live at the caprice of economic forces beyond their control. We are called upon to be more innovative and creative, or diverse in our approach to business, and above all, speaking as an artist in this new world, to maintain and develop our commitment to excellence in all our undertakings. I choose to look on this new year as an exciting and challenging opportunity to excel.
I will be creating more paintings, balancing major pieces and small paintings; and I leave it to you to judge whether my new work be some of my best. I will also be looking into old and new ways of reaching a broader public, and of satisfying the wants and desires of the marketplace.
