Day and Night
31 x 21 inches
The gridded composition is divided in half vertically. To the viewer’s left, an irregular pattern of short red, yellow, and blue arched lines fill the off-white paper. Thin, black lines create a grid 4 squares wide by 12 squares high. 10 black lines arc through the grid intersections. The right side is dark from the accumulation of overlapping black lines—also called hatching. Breaks in the hatching marks reveal the white of the paper and define diamond shaped patterns stacked vertically. Line patterns change at the bottom third of the composition on each side creating shapes resembling the silhouette of a simplified house.
