Variable 6

1962

oil, wood, wire / paper

115 cm x 31.5 cm

In Variable 6 the coarseness of the wooden ground and the stretched wire over the painted background create a flickering surface of the painting. Because of the stressed horizontal painted strips and tender wire verticals, the image/object leaves the impression of a segment cut out out some longer series, while on the other hand its vertical direction features an architectonically fixed structure with the lower, more stable part and the upper, more airy part.
