Printmaking with Ellsworth Kelly

Image coming soon.

Jeff Jahn interviews Mark and Rae Mahaffey about printmaking with painter Ellsworth Kelly on the occasion of the exhibition Ellsworth Kelly/Prints at the Portland Art Museum through September 16, 2012.

Jahn notes that Kelly's "forms are sourced from real life, first carefully observed, then captured in photos and lastly distilled until nothing but the form transforms Ellsworth's own personal subjective experience into something more universal. It is as if Kelly has taken an Epicurian impulse (it is obvious he knows something about enjoying life) and somehow found a way to make into a distillate that others can translate with their eyes."
