Kelly has used horizontal rectangular panels joined vertically since the early 1950s. This painting, made in 2006, shows his abiding interest in form, colour, shape and sequence. While his earlier paintings were largely composed of primary colours, the vibrant colours used here go beyond that range. In such cases, the colours are likely to reflect the artist’s direct visual experience, whether of the man-made or natural environment.
