Kelly John Gough

Date:10 October, 2019




Bold oils on a raw backdrop of wood panel; elegant figures with a provocative edge – Kelly John Gough’s artwork embodies a breathtaking joining of juxtapositions. Inspired by the human form, Kelly paints striking nudes and portraits with a composition enriched by chiaroscuro, exciting areas of negative space and the natural grain of his signature wooden panel canvas. South African artist Kelly works from his studio in Cape Town.
