True to His Abstraction – Ellsworth Kelly – An Explorer of Shape, Line and Color

Posted by the editors on Sunday, 22 January 2012

Carol Vogel has written a very interesting article entitled “True to His Abstraction” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times, looking at the work of the abstract artist Ellsworth Kelly, his painting, sculptures, reliefs and prints, and his life-long focus on abstraction.  Sharp, aware, inspiring and vibrant, Kelly, 88 years old, offers some fascinating commentary on his work, and the work of others, and is, in many ways, an exemplary artist’s artist, dedicated to his vision, despite the vicissitudes of the art market and the art-star status of many of his contemporaries.

The article includes an excellent slideshow, here.

Pop Rides the News Cycle – Andy Warhol as Precursor to Twitter & Facebook

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 22 October 2011

Holland Cotter has written a superb and insightful article entitled “Pop Rides the News Cycle” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times, looking at the work, and person, of Andy Warhol, his gimlet-eyed perceptions of the integration of news, commerce and art, and two exhibitions currently on view in the U.S. capitol, “Warhol: Headlines” at the National Gallery of Art and (through 2 January 2012) “Andy Warhol: Shadows,” (through 15 January 2012) at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.  Astounding.  Sharp, concise, deep, and clear.  A must-read, whether you can get to D.C. to view the shows, or not.

Excellent, but brief, slideshow, here.
