This will be an Art Exhibition. All about how simple yet beautiful art can be.
I will be focusing on abstract pieces, that focus on simple shapes and colors.
Some art I will be reviewing and sharing with you will be from some AMAZING artists. Such as: Edward Weston, Barnett Newman, Jean Hans and many more! I hope you enjoy this glimpse of art history...

Red Blue Green, 1963, Oil on Canvas 6' 11 5/8" X 11' 3 7/8"
Kelly(May 31, 1923 – present day) is an American
painter, sculptor, and printmaker associated withhard-edge
His work demonstrates unassuming techniques emphasizing simplicity of for, he
often uses bright colors. One variant he uses is the hard-edge painting of
Post-Painterly Abstraction. He used delineated areas of color to distill
painting with razor-sharp edges, living it with its essential two dimensional
elements. This painting gives no
illusion of depth and the shapes are 2 dimensional, keeping this painting
simple but stunning.
"The form of my painting is the content." - Ellsworth Kelly
This is the painting that made me choose the category of my exhibition. This is one of my absolute favorites.
