NY SOCIAL DIARY: STUDIO VISIT WITH JOHN WOODROW KELLEY

Eros & Psyche

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."
