Ellsworth Kelly

Ellsworth Kelly is one of those names that floats around my head when I'm doing repetitive tasks, or running, or falling asleep at night.  Such a lovely rhythmic sound to it.  His work is equally insistent.  Shape, colour and form vie for attention on the canvas, creating images that are the visual equivalent of a poke in the eye.

"I'm not interested in edges.  I'm interested in the mass and color, the black and white.  The edges happen because the forms get as quiet as they can be.  I want the masses to perform.  When I work with forms and colors, I get the edge..."  (Ellsworth Kelly).
