Ellsworth Kelly’s Australian Summer
Single-section hard cover book in clamshell box
I first saw Ellsworth Kelly’s paintings when I was eight years old, and was immediately and totally enthralled. It was a defining moment in my life—one I recall with clarity, even to this day—and it opened my eyes to the sheer beauty and visual impact of bold colour and clean lines. My book is an interpretation and an imagining of how Kelly might have been influenced by an Australian summer of scorching heatwaves and dramatic hailstorms. Presented in the form of a monograph featuring colour plates, it pays tribute to this important influence on my aesthetic sensibility.
