Above is one of Kelley's most visually recognized pieces, Deodorized Central Mass with Satellites (1991/1999), clusters of found plush toys sewn together. The room is occasionally spritzed with deodorizing mist, so that the immersive work affects both vision and smell.
While Deodorized Central Mass is often mentioned as one of Kelley's most iconic pieces, Kelley's work is more than just plushies. Some of his drawings highlight imagery that questions identify and a sense of self. Below are two drawings from a three-part triptych Kelley made in 1982 where he tries his hand at "tagging" his name in different fonts.
