Catalogue Note

“I began to realize that if one was to use the movement as a kind of essential expression, one probably had to try it with extremely simple forms. And this led me gradually to pare the forms down until I arrived simply at lines. These pieces with long blades are really just an exploitation of the simplest means I could find at the time for showing a kind of ordered and related set of movements.”
