With a prolific career spanning more than 60 years, Ellsworth Kelly (b. 1923) is internationally acclaimed for his monochromatic paintings and flat, almost two-dimensional sculptures that explore dynamic relationships among shape, color, and space. On the occasion of his 90th birthday year, this exhibition presents seven large-scale multi-panel works featuring a spectrum of colors and geometric forms that have dominated the artist’s career. Abstract in form and free of narrative, they hover on the wall, dramatically engaging with space and playing with light and shadow.
The exhibition is organized by The Phillips Collection.
