Stephen Ellis reevaluates the legacy of Minimalism and explores painting’s reliance on a set of codes, as presented in this new and comprehensive monograph of works executed from 1989-2001. Placing Ellis at the forefront of contemporary art and abstract painting, this investigation reveals a rich œuvre of emotionally charged paintings. Beautifully produced and fully illustrated in color, the book is an important resource to those interested in Ellis' work or the subject of abstract painting and its context in contemporary art and culture. 

Stephen Ellis (born 1951, North Carolina) lives and works in New York City. He has exhibited extensively in Europe and the United States. His work has recently been featured at the Reina Sophia, Madrid; the Musée d'Art Moderne de Saint Etienne; and P.S. 1 in New York.
