Rough Version

RIP Mike Kelley

As most art fans know, Mike Kelley died earlier this week. It's so sad. He had a huge personal impact on me and I imagine many other people. Apart from Destroy All Monsters, apart from all the dirty mixed media work, for me what Kelley has been making in recent yers has been awe inspiring. The Kandors shows at Jablonka in Berlin and Galerie Hussenot in Paris in particular were so atmospheric and strange and emotive. Here are just a few images and videos showing why he was such a genius.
