Cheryl Kelley
"1964 G.T.O" Abstract Large Horizontal Blue Photorealistic Close Up Car Painting

Early 21st Century

US$9,000

About

Photorealistic close up painting of a classic blue muscle car. Kelley is able to capture the subtle curves of the vehicle through her dynamic use of light and shadow. Signed and titled on the back. Currently not framed, but options are available. Artist Biography: Cheryl Kelley is an American painter known for her photorealism, especially her paintings of classic and muscle cars. Her work has been featured on the cover of Harper's Magazine and can be seen at various galleries around the country. In 2009 and 2011 she was a finalist for the Hunting Art Prize, and in 2012 she received a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant. The art collectors' resource Artsy considers her one of the ten "Masters of Photorealism". Much of the commentary on Kelley's work centers on her use of cars as subjects. Her low angles of perspective and emphasis on "sensuous curves and luscious surfaces" are seen as representing a feminine, sexualized take on a conventionally masculine area of interest. By "portray[ing] high-powered muscle cars as seductive objects of desire," she "brings a uniquely female perspective to these objects that are almost synonymous with youthful bad-boy hyper-masculinity."
