Ellsworth Kelly?s Final Masterpiece Is a Majestic Study of Light and Color

Austin is the artist?s first and only free-standing building and one of the last masterpieces in his career.

In January 2015, Ellsworth Kelly gifted the Blanton Museum of Art a design concept called Austin, the artist?s first and only free-standing building and one of his last masterpieces before he passed away in December 2015. After nearly three decades, the project is now completed, standing on-campus at the University of Texas in Austin.

From the start, Kelly weighed in on many details of the building, from the large limestones that are anchored to the building down to the grout color choices. The design of the 2,715-square-foot-building is based on a sketch that he made of a chapel in France, the country he was fascinated with for its Romanesque and Cistercian architecture. Similar to his works on canvas, Austin is a majestic study of light and color. 33 individual windows of stained glass cast soft glows in a spectrum of colors and are arranged in three unique designs: ?color grid,? ?starburst,? and ?tumbling squares.? It?s not hard to draw parallels between light and religion in a place like this, nor is it difficult to feel a sense of calm and peace once inside.
