Christopher Joy and Zachary Keeting interview painter Todd Kelly at his exhibition My Own Personal Rebus at Asya Geisberg Gallery, New York, on view through March 9, 2013.

Kelly, who employs a surprising range of style and subject matter in his work, describes how he thinks of painting "as a method of thinking... With this show, especially, instead of trying to narrow it down to one thought, I'm just allowing whatever thought comes into my mind - I'm going to work with it, I'm going to… make that into the painting."
