The Way They Live 2010
"John Woodrow Kelley is a painter who works to create a contemporary interpretation of Greek mythology and the classical tradition. He grew up in Tennessee, where he still owns a house, but studied architecture at Pratt and then stayed put, having lived in Clinton Hill in Brooklyn for close to 25 years. He’s got all the usual artist's insecurities but none of the artist’s obnoxious self-regard, and we loved the care he had taken to put together his idiosyncratic and charming place on the lower two floors of a brownstone."
A monograph of John Woodrow Kelley's Greek mythology paintings
"The Greek myths embody everything that is timeless about the human experience. They reveal truths and acknowledge mysteries. They survive in the subconscious of Western man to the point that to learn about them is to experience a shock of recognition."
