Ellsworth Kelly (1923-2015) was an American artist recognized for his paintings, prints and sculptures. Kelly is best known for his abstractions that distill worldly encounters into forms and colors.[i] His work is often associated with art movements including Hard-edge, Color-field, Minimalism and Post-painterly abstraction.
Austin is the only free-standing architectural project designed by Kelly. Diverging from Kelly's other works that typically contemplate the natural world, Austin originated as an investigation into the Stations of the Cross.[ii] In its final form, Austin is a chapel-like structure that creates a space for meditation. Austin is a unique piece that allows the public to become immersed in Kelly's work and world, filled with subtleties of shape and color.
