(Top) 'Spectrum of Colours Arranged by Chance', 1951

I have recently discovered the study room at the new Nottingham Contemporary Gallery. Flicking through a book on colour I stumbled across the work of Ellsworth Kelly. Kelly uses chance to dictate the compositions in his paintings by working with painted chips of colour turned upside down and stuck together at random. This approach has inspired by current collection, encouraging a more spontaneous and fun way of working.
