ELLSWORTH KELLY: PHOTOGRAPHS
by Aperture and Matthew Marks Gallery
Photographs, edited by Aperture Foundation and Matthew Marks Gallery, is the first publication about Ellsworth Kelly’s photographic production. Focused on studying the strength of colour and the minimalism of shapes and lines, the artist was well known for his bright and contrasted paintings.
Unlike his vivid pictorial works, Kelly’s photographs are strictly black and white. Plays of light and shadows define the silhouettes and recreate new subjects, building geometric figures that emerge from the paper and lead the observer through a new perceptive universe. Sometimes abstract, but with an intense materiality.
Mutina LIBRARY is a visual compendium made of all the inspirational sources that brought Mutina brand to life and shape.
