Red Diagonal

Ellsworth Kelly
  • Date: 2007
  • Style: Hard Edge Painting

At the same time, these layered pieces extend away from the wall, cutting into the viewer's space. His careful placement of the overlapping canvases creates precise, yet varying shapes in both the positive and negative space.
