Daniel Kelly – Something Fishy
American-born, Kyoto-based artist Daniel Kelly is a painter who is fascinated with exploring three dimensional space with his work. He often paints on canvases that have been stretched over objects, creating pieces that have a truly tangible feeling of depth. His upcoming show at Hillside Terrace marks his 15th exhibition at the space, and the stars of this particular show are a series of koi fish which have been painted on linen and kimono fabric that is mounted on polyurethane foam and wood.

In addition to the koi paintings, there will be oil paintings on display, as well as early watercolors and prints. Kelly will also be showing at the 61st College Women’s Association of Japan print show, which is taking place at the Hillside Forum. Guests are invited to attend both shows. Friday’s opening reception will feature a special live performance.
