In this work, Bolotowsky's interest in exploring pure geometric form and color is clear. The artist was profoundly influenced by Piet Mondrian and his Neo-Plasticism, which it shows in Bolotowsky's experimentation with non-objective representation. His work of the 1970s, like this one, tended not to conform to the shape of the page but, at the same time, still strove for harmony and equilibrim. This screenprint is part of a series of four prints produced as a portfolio.Physical Description
This screenprint has a number of large rectangular shapes spread throughout the whole composition: a large dark yellow square in lower left quadrant, a lighter yellow square and rectangles along top and lower right quadrant, and blue, black and white vertical and horizontal lines between the yellow components.Primary Object Classification Print Primary Object TypeabstractCollection AreaModern and ContemporaryRights
