Charles A. Riley II reviews three New York exhibitions: Ellsworth Kelly: Last Paintings and Plant Drawings at Matthew Marks Gallery (through June 24), Robert Mangold Paintings and Works on Paper 2013 - 2017 at Pace Gallery (through June 17), and works by David Novros at Paula Cooper Gallery (through June 2).

Riley notes: "Touring this notably similar trio of exhibitions—and comparing the exquisite surfaces, sculptural shaped canvases and inventive color choices—induces a combination of awe and reverent attention to the details of the works in all their uncanny perfection."
