Galway artist Dean Kelly's most recent works, 'City Studies' celebrate the built heritage of his native city and will be on display at the Kenny Gallery through Heritage Week 2019.
Dean Kelly's representational layered symbolic works chronicle changes in Irish society through recent years. Often concerned with the poignant ebbing of ephemeral culture, his paintings show a contemporary approach to traditional materials and lean increasingly towards the expressive. Colour, texture, drawing and various forms of mark-making are collaged, layered and juxtaposed using various media. His photography unabashedly records his locality and forms an ongoing resource for his paintings.
