Mike Kelley dies at 57; L.A. contemporary artist
Mike Kelley's psychologically complex work was instrumental in making L.A. an international capital of contemporary art. He was found dead Tuesday evening at his home in South Pasadena in what several friends described as a suicide following a serious depression. "We can't confirm a suicide pending an autopsy or coroner's report," said one of the estate's trustees, art historian John Welchman.

Paul Schimmel, the chief curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, called Kelley a "great advocate for artists as well as a great artist," noting his role teaching at the Art Center College of Design. http://www.latimes.com/news/obituaries/la-me-mike-kelley-20120202,0,1424613.story
