Elsworth Kelly


Red Green Blue

Hard-edged, colourfield, ex-military, work inspired by the shadows of camouflage, the construction and deconstruction of ‘stuff.’ Also been known to use household paint on MDF. That’s my kind of art. I’ll be waxing on about Gary Hume any minute now.

    is it a man with a square bum sitting next to a curvaceous lady on a bus seat

    A close up of two of the Mr Men lying next to each other on the grass?

    are you two fhilistines collaborating or is it simply a matter of: Anjali- meet Elt?

    It’s clearly a view from above of a red brick university building with a bit of grass next to a lake. Maybe even UEA?! 😉

    “Also been known to use household paint on MDF. That’s my kind of art.”

    Surely that’s just DIY?! 😉 Maybe I should start charging folk to view my recently laid loft boards… Pointon’s latest ouvre “Particle board on joist” demonstrates the juxtaposition between the environmental concerns of the C21st home owner, and the Edwardian developer, while capturing the futility of a Premier League season – once joy at watching a beloved team has been usurped by the now favoured yet dull DIY duties…. etc

  9. Stephen Foster says:

    It’s simply a matter of context.

    Are you an artist, for a start?

  10. AndyP says:

    Has a nerve been touched? 😉

    “Are you an artist for a start?”
    Well that’s simply a matter of opinion. By some criteria I could be. I used to dabble in abstract expressionism as a youth, my cavass was A4 ringbinder folders, and my paint was household dregs rescued from the shed. Dripping, flicking and scratching with a stick was my modus operandi. John Squire was my inspiration, which led to an interest in Pollock.

    Maybe when I’ve finished the loft I should take leftover particleboard and go beserk with some of my many pots of emulsion. Then you can be the judge of my “artistic talents” and whether they merit similar acclaim to ol’ Elsworth! 😉

    Thank you for making me smile
