exhibition begins with studies for sculpture projects and with postcard collages
that together provide an insight into Kelly’s work between 1956 and 1985.
Prior to creating outdoor sculptures as from 1970, Kelly had, as far back as the
fifties, experimented with the integration of different forms into outdoor spaces.
By placing scraps of paper in the middle of postcards and obstructing the vistas
originally shown, he emphasizes the two-dimensionality of the pictorial space.
In his later works, we shall again encounter the repertoire of forms developed
during those earlier years in his “Studies for ‘Yellow Curve I,’
‘Red Curve I,’ and 'Blue Curve III.’”
