Location Description

Ellsworth Kelly’s visual vocabulary is drawn from observation of the world around him—shapes and colors found in plants, architecture, shadows on a wall or a lake. This creative way of communicating has been shaped by his interest in the spaces between places and objects and between his work and its viewers. The artist has said, “In my work, I don’t want you to look at the surface; I want you to look at the form, the relationships.”
