BIOGRAPHY

LAWRENCE R. KELSEY

Born in Lakewood, Ohio in 1948, Lawrence Kelsey's work focuses on scenes of New York City, as well as landscapes and botanicals. Kelsey is one of the premier contemporary painters of New York City. With oils and gouaches, the artist creates intimate atmospheric and poetic settings that integrate abstraction with realism. His new works present a new vision of New York in high-key, anti-naturalistic shapes and colors, eliminating unnecessary details for maximum impact, with a focus on the play of light and shadow.
