As a sculptor and role model to aspiring young artists, Lee Kelly has played a significant role in creating the Northwest regional art scene. This book documents his sixty year career. His work has traversed the aesthetic developments of gestural abstraction, minimalism, and post-modernism, while his vocabulary has always retained a core focus on the balance and grace of architectural geometry and a craftsman’s respect and understanding of the materials at hand. His work is both an art of contemplation and active experience. The text explores Kelly's impact on the art of the Northwest, his public art projects, and places his work in relation to post-World War II American sculpture.
