In recent years, artist Jay Kelly has produced a series of large-scale mixed media pieces featuring a combination of his photography paired with found imagery and materials, paint, stencils and resin – to illuminate a single subject : emotion.

A fusion of rawness and polish reminding the viewer that beauty can be found in unexpected places and in everyday encounters.

Kelly has attracted the attention of collectors around the world with solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, New York, Aspen and Miami, and is also represented by galleries in Park City, throughout Germany and in the Netherlands. His work has also been featured in television shows and feature films, including the cult classic “Donnie Darko.”
