I have been exhibiting Fine Art Photography in Galleries in the U.S and U.K since 1998. Review provided by 'New York Artworld' magazine, 2004: "Kelly blurs the line between photography and painting. His subject matter, ranging from images of the natural world (flora and fauna), to urban and residential landscapes, focuses on the individual's place in a given environment as expressed by his or her body language. For example, in the work, 'Beach Kids', Kelly depicts a beach in Newport, California, in which the shore's wide expanse of yellow sand is divided by a white line of froth from the band of grey ocean; This in turn is divided by the horizon from the immense, grey-blue sky." This is an excerpt from the press release from my fourth solo show at Robin Rice Gallery in September, 2010 - "Pete Kelly's latest show evokes memory through strong associative, emotional and surreal imagery, stretching reality toward a timeless fantasia. Through his collection, Kelly invites viewers to not only bear witness to the moments he has captured in frame, but provides tangible windows of access in each piece, rousing their faded cache of memories and permitting them to relive each experience as if it were their own". My work is currently in the following Permanent Photographic Collections: Dow & Jones, Sloan-Kettering, Bloomingdales, Macy's, Polo Ralph Lauren, The Connaught Hotel, Williamsburg Art & Historical Society, Jerry Bruckheimer, Ken Jones Jr Fine Art and many other private collectors. My photographs represent a collaboration of ideas in the camera and the computer, utilizing photographic and digital techniques, arriving at a point which reflects the Dadaist concept 'Photography as the Art of the Found'. My images are rarely staged, they may be photographically manipulated for example photographing the subject out of focus, or digitally manipulated, by layering images or textures together for a conceptual purpose. However the images were found, as represented in the viewfinder of the camera at that moment in time. The nostalgic or painterly style, which is created by layering photographs of found textures such as close-ups of stone walls, brush strokes on canvas or scratches on photographic film. The 'spontaneity' in the texture reinforces the Dadaist 'Found Object as Art' concept.
