Spectrum Colors Arranged by Chance IV, 1951 – Ellsworth Kelly
“Ellsworth Kelly’s “Spectrum Colors Arranged by Chance” is one of the first abstract works the artist produced after abandoning figure painting. A series of eight collages made up of hundreds of squares of colour randomly placed on a white or black background,” Spectrum Colors Arranged by Chance” was the product of a mathematical system: numbered slips of paper referred each to one of eighteen different hues to be placed on a grid 40 inches by 40 inches. For each one of the eight collages Kelly used a different process, working one colour at a time and always unaware of the results.”
