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
In this abstract screenprint, a large red circle is broken up by vertical and horizontal white lines. In addition, there are horizontal yellow and blue lines in the bottom right portion of the circle. The page is signed (l.r.) "Ilya Bolotowsky" and numbered (l.l.) "154/225" in pencil.Primary Object ClassificationPrintCollection AreaModern and ContemporaryRights
