Artwork description

Ellsworth Kelly’s six decades of plant drawings were the subject of a comprehensive exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 2012. This book, from a smaller exhibition at the Matthew Marks Gallery, preceded the Met show by twenty years. These drawings gracefully capture the essence of an otherwise remarkably complex natural world, and are representational views from an ardently abstract artist. To Kelly, however, they are “a kind of bridge to a way of seeing that was the basis of the very first abstract paintings.” The work includes an essay by poet and former ARTNews editor John Ashbery. This is copy 15 of 100 (of a planned but unrealized 150) hardbound copies signed by Kelly and Ashbery.
