Like the artists whose work was shown in the 1960 exhibition Situation, Huxley’s work shows a concern with the formal properties of painting.

Here the series of triangles that diminish in size suggests a three dimensional space, as if the lower triangles are nearer than the higher ones. But at the same time the flat bands of colour at the top right emphasise the flatness of the surface. The largest triangle leads the eye to the bottom of the picture, a device Huxley often used to draw attention to the area of the painting below eye-level.
