Exhibition Catalogue Announcement – John Kelly10 May 2022
JOHN KELLY: THE LAZARUS SERIES
The digital catalogue for the upcoming selling exhibition JOHN KELLY: The Lazarus Series exhibition at Smith & Singer is now available to view online.
During the past two and a half decades John Kelly has developed a distinguished reputation in Australia and internationally for his work that combines his unique intellect and humour. Bristol born, Kelly moved to Australia with his parents in 1965, the year of his birth. Kelly now resides in West Cork, Ireland and has English, Australian and Irish nationality. It was during his time in Australia that Kelly developed his affinity with one of his most recognised subjects, William Dobell’s camouflaged cows, created when, during World War II, Dobell was commissioned to make paper-mâché cows with the purpose of confusing enemy aircraft about the locations of Australian airbases.
This significant exhibition will feature 16 major works by the artist and will be open to the public Monday–Friday, 10 am – 5 pm, 17 May – 10 June 2022 at 14-16 Collins Street, Melbourne.
