Ellsworth Kelly (1923-2015) is known for his large format paintings in clear shape and colours. The monochrome works initially appear abstract and perhaps impersonal. Nothing could be less true. Nature, in particular the plant kingdom, and our everyday life are Kelly’s sources of inspiration. His work engages directly with his surroundings.
Rudi Fuchs made a balanced selection of more than 80 works, including paintings, drawings and collages. The exhibition was made in close contact with the artist and the Ellsworth Kelly Studio in Spencertown (United States). The preparations were in full swing when the artist died at the end of 2015. More than ever, the exhibition is intended as a homage to the artist and his oeuvre.
