16 Bagatelles 1968

plasticized cardboard, wood

100 cm x 100 cm x 10 cm

The work 16 Bagatelles, created in 1968, is a white, monochrome relief, executed in plasticized cardboard on a wooden background. It consists of sixteen small squares of equal dimensions, distributed into a regular raster – a net of four horizontal and vertical rows unified in a large square. Each element from the series is different, and all of them are executed with the utmost precision. The colour white contributes to the subtle, even meditative play of light on the embossed or concave, geometrically strictly structured forms.
