Moon’s experimentation with the grid form is at its most complex in Untitled [‘72]. Limiting his palette to black and white, Moon fragments a large black grid into smaller elements of equal size and arranges them so that they meet at different angles. The resulting kaleidoscopic effect conveys the juxtaposition of stasis and dynamic motion. The brushwork suggests that Moon was moving towards a greater degree of spontaneity and experimentation.
