ELLSWORTH KELLY FLOWERS AND ABSTRACTION

This article from the New York Times is a favourite on the late Ellsworth Kelly. We love the description of how the botanical created a doorway to his abstract paintings. Also about the idea that they prompt a visual recording of his physical presence in time. But what’s most exciting is that both the botanical drawing and the abstract painting marry, revealing further insight into his entire painting discourse. Such a beautiful, gentle man.
