This etching gives the series its name. ‘All the works in this series interact on one level or another’, Bennett has said. ‘Whether it be the futile effort to escape into the “purity” of Malevich’s square or abstract spiritual world... or the bludgeoning effect of cultural imperialism... or the pain inflicted by such imperialism... or to escape the spirit by suicide... or to find “equality” as an “angel” once one has passed through into the abstract.’
