Ellsworth Kelly, one of America’s preeminent artists, has redefined abstraction in art through his use of bold colors and forms. His visual vocabulary draws inspiration from the world around him—shapes and colors found in plants, architecture, shadows on a wall or a lake—and has been shaped by his interest in the spaces between places and objects and between his work and its viewers. He has said, "In my work, I don't want you to look at the surface; I want you to look at the form, the relationships." The exhibition of prints at Elizabeth Leach Gallery complements the Portland Art Museum’s Ellsworth Kelly / Prints on view June 16 - September 16, 2012. The museum’s exhibition was organized in cooperation with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art which recently staged the first retrospective of Kelly’s prolific print practice.

Kelly’s work has been widely exhibited throughout the world and is featured in such prominent collections as those of the Centre Pompidou, Paris, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, and Tate Modern, London. In 1999, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art acquired 22 works, paintings, wall reliefs and sculptures, by Ellsworth Kelly. In 2003, the Menil Collection received Kelly's Tablet, 188 framed works on paper, including sketches, working drawings and collages.
