John Kelsey's watercolors

John Kelsey's exhibition at Galerie Buchholz in Berlin features a series of watercolor paintings, shaped monochromatic canvases and wooden whales. The paintings are scenes, primarily of men, street fighting. They have the fresh gestural characteristics of watercolor paintings and capture the violence of the moment.  The paintings immediately called to mind Steve Mumford's watercolor paintings about Guantanamo Bay as well as the recent George Bellows survey exhibition at the Met.
