Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present New Work: Paintings, Drawings, and Sculpture, a solo exhibition of colorful minimal pieces by Jeff Kellar. He creates beautiful surfaces through the application of many layers of acrylic resin and clay pigment onto paper, aluminum panels, and wood blocks. Each layer is methodically sanded and buffed leaving the surface smooth and modulated. Playing with illusion, ambiguity, and space, Kellar uses these ultra flat surfaces to form dimensional compositions. Small sculptures of precariously stacked blocks also inspire his two-dimensional works.
Kellar’s work can be found in the collections of the Farnsworth Museum of Art in Rockland, ME, the Maine Department of Conservation, the Microsoft Collection in Seattle, the Museum of American Art in Philadelphia, and the Portland Museum of Art in Portland, ME, among many others. Jeff Kellar lives and works in Maine and was a recipient of the Adolf and Ester Gottlieb Foundation Grant.
