Description

Ellsworth Kelly consistently pursued a vision that repudiates illusion and artifice. For more than fifty years the artist pursued a consistent language in his compositions that is dependent upon intuitive yet highly precise balances of shape, space, and pure color. This three-panel sculpture comprises three joined sections of aluminum of differing widths painted in blue, green, and red that project slightly from the wall, calling attention to its status as sculpture.
