The drawing explores several manifestations of the circular opening that would become a recurring motif in her sculpture after 1959. The effect Bontecou seems to pursue is the sense that a much deeper space lies behind the paper. The forms have a distinctly organic, extraterrestrial feel to them.Physical Description
