Summary

Work No.1103 2011 consists of seven thick horizontal rectangular strokes of dark red-brown oil paint applied across a commercially prepared and unframed canvas.

The bottom stroke spans the entire width of the canvas. All of the white ground has been left exposed around the painted shape. The colour has been applied from left to right in a single layer of uniform thickness, with a set of flat brushes reducing in breadth from bottom to top (7.5 cm, 6.5 cm, 5.5 cm, 5 cm, 4 cm, 3.5 cm and 3 cm)… (read more)
