HackelBury Fine Art is pleased to announce British artist Oli Kellett’s first solo exhibition, Cross Road Blues, 16 November 2018 – 23 February 2019. This exhibition presents large-scale photographs from Kellett’s on-going Cross Road Blues series taken at urban intersections across America.

The series borrows its title from the legendary blues song by Robert Johnson which some claim is a reference to the singer selling his soul to the devil at a Mississippi Delta crossroads. The mythology surrounding Johnson’s song can be interpreted as a cautionary tale of the price paid for the American Dream, and Kellett’s allusion to it leaves the viewer wondering if the figures in his photographs chose their souls or their dreams at their crossroads.
