This exploration of the most recent paintings and sculptures of one of the world's most important living artists includes more than 30 works made over the past three years, and focuses on the artist's ongoing rigorous investigations of color and form. The chromatics of the paintings reproduced here are balanced by Kelly's strictly calculated compositions, in which the literal shapes of his canvases, often joined and overlapped, enter a dialogue with the colors that allows them to advance and recede. Also pictured are 10 of the artist's most recent monumental sculptures, including a 50-foot tall stainless steel totem installed at the edge of a lake, where its remarkable form is mirrored in the water's surface, as well as a series of enormous wall panels that were commissioned for the United States Embassy in Beijing.
