About This Item: 
The first thorough look at Mike Kelley's riotous, irreverent and colorful paintingsFeaturing paintings from series that span a 15-year period, 1994 through 2009, this volume traces Mike Kelley's (1954-2012) engagement with the medium through bodies of work including The Thirteen Seasons (Heavy on the Winter), a series of oval-shaped paintings on wood, Timeless Painting, which marked Kelley's distinct return to painting in color, and which he described as "mannerist take-offs on Hans Hofmann's compositional theory of 'push and pull'", the Horizontal Tracking Shots series, as well as works made under the umbrella of his expansive and ambitious Extracurricular Activity Projective Reconstructions, a series related to the Educational Complex artwork. Kelley's seminal mixed-media installation Profondeurs Vertes, his ode to the influential paintings in the collection of the Detroit Institute of Arts that captivated him as a young person, is also featured. The publication includes texts by various contemporary visual artists responding to Kelley's art: Edgar Arceneaux, Carroll Dunham, Daniel Guzmán, Richard Hawkins, Jay Heikes, Jamian Juliano-Villani, Mary Reid Kelley, Christina Quarles and Laurie Simmons.
