I benefited from a lovely incidence of synchronicity this morning when two discrete sources led me to the work of the American artist Ellsworth Kelly. The image above is one of his ‘Plant Drawings’ – an exhibition of which is currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
While I can only view them on screen, these seem like exquisite, delicate nature studies.
Tablet, a signed, limited edition book featuring many of Kelly’s sketches, collages, studies and unfinished illustrations is available here for 1,000USD. The regular edition for plebs like me can be found here for 50USD (shown below). It receives a glowing recommendation from the illustrator Rosemarie Auberson.
