It was upsetting and exhilarating in equal measure to see a selection of those paintings extracted from the detritus of Kelleys sprawling artistic career and made to stand for something important in the cold confines of Hauser & Wirth. Separated from the stuffed animals, videos, sculptures, and architectural models that crowded MoMA PS1 a few years ago, Kelleys paintings become an uncomfortable retrospective, inevitably shadowed by the artists suicide in 2012.
