Museum & Gallery Shows: Ellsworth Kelly: Prints and Paintings

Posted by the editors on Tuesday, 24 January 2012

Museum & Gallery Shows: Ellsworth Kelly: Prints and Paintings: “..Ellsworth Kelly: Prints and Paintings is the first retrospective examination of Kelly’s exceedingly prolific print practice since 1988. The exhibition includes over 100 prints..organized thematically in order to explore Kelly’s mastery of key formal motifs: grids, contrast and curves. In the words of catalogue raisonné author Richard Axsom, Kelly’s prints “exchange the totemic presence, the tangible physicality and public assertiveness of the paintings and sculptures for the qualities no less genuine in registering Kelly’s vision: intimacy, delicacy, and in nearly immaterial veils of shape and color, an unmatched ethereality.”” LACMA, January 22, 2012–April 22, 2012. Stupendous..
