'Ellsworth Kelly: Postcards' is on view at Matthew Marks

Ellsworth Kelly lovers, rejoice! Ellsworth Kelly: Postcards is Back in Stock, right in synch with the exhibition on view now through June 25 at Matthew Marks gallery in Chelsea. “With his fragmented intrusions, Kelly simultaneously re-embodied the postcard scene and flattened out the spatial depth observed in the postcard window,” Tricia Y. Paik writes. “His approach and method emerged from the fragmented vision of the mid-twentieth century, yet Kelly paradoxically achieved the opposite. While contemporaries such as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and James Rosenquist reveled in multiplicity and layers, Kelly arrived at an expansive simplicity and singularity. Kelly’s postcard archive reveals specific snapshots of his intuitive and transformative vision, as he searched for moments of ‘rightness.’ From the start of his childhood, Kelly mined ‘the sights of his lifetime,’ endeavoring to capture for himself and for future audiences that one glimpse of perception, a flash of recognition transformed into a singular shape and hue.”
