Opening Reception for Juan Kelly: Equinations

December 15, 2023, 5:00 pm7:00 pm

Nüart Gallery presents Equinations, an exhibition featuring new work by Juan Kelly. The exhibition will run December 15, 2023–January 7, 2024 with an opening reception on Friday, December 15, from 5-7 pm.

Equinations represents a significant departure in Juan Kelly’s artistic journey, focusing on the theme of horses. This exhibition provides an insight into Kelly’s creative process, where he investigates the relationship between imagery and narrative. While horses are central to the exhibition, they serve as a canvas for broader reflections on life, humanity, and a commitment to exploring the fundamentals of visual perception. Kelly’s animal motifs, particularly horses, are not just representations of the animal kingdom but serve as vehicles for deeper contemplation about the human condition.

The work presented in Equinations reflects a thoughtful process akin to a composer or a choreographer. The exhibition showcases Kelly’s ability to translate complex ideas and emotions into visual form, inviting viewers to engage with his paintings on multiple levels. Equinations offers a unique opportunity to experience Juan Kelly’s latest body of work. It is an invitation to explore the convergence of the real and the imagined, challenging viewers to find their own interpretations and connections within each piece.

Juan Kelly’s career spans several decades, with his work being showcased in various galleries and museums internationally. His art has found a home in numerous private and public collections, reflecting his ongoing contribution to contemporary art.
