Ellsworth Kelly

This week in The Art of Walking we're looking at the work of Ellsworth Kelly. Love the piece featured above. Also picked up Alain Botton's book 'The Architecture of Happiness' again, good stuff, reminded me why we stood in front of the eggs at the supermarket the other day for 10 minutes wondering which looked the most natural to purchase... the more un-natural and synthetic our world becomes the more we crave the natural. Must be why I'm drawn to the Kelly, miss the artist's hand in modern art.  The more synthetic art becomes the more I miss pencil on paper....
