At 90, Still Riveting the Mind's Eye
June 3, 2013

Ellsworth Kelly has been on earth for 90 years — his birthday was Friday — and he has been making abstract art for over 60 of them. Now the New York art world is treating him, and us, to a big party. His boldly colored, emblematic paintings and reliefs can be seen in five exhibitions around town. In unusually gorgeous terms, they attest to a lifelong fusion of austerity and high spirits, and a narrow yet deep exploration of pure colors and simple shapes.

From Sculpture on the Wall at the Barnes Foundation to the Museum of Modern Art’s Chatham Series, the work of artist Ellsworth Kelly is being celebrated across the East Coast this spring. Until June 1, the Mnuchin Gallery in New York will join in on the event, hosting Kelly’s ongoing Singular Forms series, which has spanned most of his career, from 1966-2009.

Ellsworth Kelly at Matthew Marks, MoMA and Mnuchin
May 28, 2013

The best way to experience the array of exhibitions celebrating Ellsworth Kelly’s 90th birthday is to start downtown and work your way uptown, which is to say: begin with his most recent pieces and work backwards in time, allowing the present to foreshadow the past, playing the day like Jeopardy!, matching questions to the answers you already have.

Kelly's Colors Only Get Brighter With Time
May 20, 2013

When you live to 90, you collect a lot of stories. And when you've lived the life of Ellsworth Kelly, your book can read like a who's-who in a modern-art museum collection.

 

"Do you know Bruce Nauman? Have you ridden horses with him?" asked Mr. Kelly, the painter and sculptor who turns 90 on May 31. He has, once. "I was with Agnes Martin when we visited. A little ski town, Taos."

Galleries Celebrate Ellsworth Kelly at 90
April 26, 2013

“When you reach 90, 89 and 91 really aren’t important,” Ellsworth Kelly said cheerily. “It’s just another year.”

 

The artist was on the phone from his studio in Spencertown, N.Y., where he doesn’t seem to have much time to bother about his birthday.

Just Added: Ellsworth Kelly @ Mnuchin Gallery
April 5, 2013

In my past experiences and memories, the difference between the “good” Ellsworth Kelly paintings, and the “great” ones… is him.
