I’m feeling really excited about Ellsworth Kelly lately (who, by the way, comes from Newburgh). I can’t wait to see these two pieces in the Color Chart exhibit at MoMA. Has anyone been yet?
Spectrum Colors Arranged by Chance II. 1951.
Cut-and-pasted color-coated paper and pencil on four sheets of paper, 38 1/4 x 38 1/4" (97.2 x 97.2 cm).
Colors for a Large Wall. 1951.
Oil on canvas, sixty-four panels, 7′ 10 1/2" x 7′ 10 1/2" (240 x 240 cm).
haven’t been yet but i’m dying to go. these look great.
I went a week ago and I was actually surprised to like the top one you posted. I’m not a fan of Ellsworth Kelly, just not my style.
I was just thinking of Ellsworth Kelly this morning. Colors in geometric shapes are never a bad thing, so agreeable and beautiful. I must see the show!
I also LOVE Ellsworth Kelly and just took a look at MoMA’s
online exhibition for “Color Chart” – they did an amazing job.
I went on Sunday and was blown away, so much so I was inspired to make a collage of red paint chips. Or maybe it was your pink paint chips for your bathroom that did that?
