Who wants to join me for a road (er train) trip to see Ellsworth Kelly Plant Drawings at The Metropolitan Museum of Art? Kelly’s drawings are spare and spartan, and yet full of warmth and dimension. There is something about them that alludes to the story behind them, an idea I had before I read this glowing review of the small exhibition in the New York Times (plants, it seems, are having a major moment in New York City this summer).
As someone who loves taking pictures of my plants as a way to remember not just what I thought was beautiful, but in order to remember what I wasfeelingat that time, I kind of figured there was more to Kelly’s art than mere botanical art. So, who’s up for a quick gallery visit?~AR
