ellsworth kelly.

i know this kind of simple, bold art is hard for some to appreciate, because it looks too easy. in my opinion, that is the perfect opportunity to take notice of and embrace the aesthetics of such images. kelly's work is graphic and clean, the colors are pure and matte. he said:
"In my work, I don't want you to look at the surface; I want you to look at the form, the relationships. "
some art is all about thought + perception—i always appreciate that. the artist doesn't offer up the meaning or intention of his work, but rather asks you to extract what meaning you can out of it. which, needless to say, makes the experience of looking at it much more... meaningful.

teehee.

hello, thursday.
