In its exceptional subtlety, Kappa Group II achieves a nuanced grace that, while impossible to articulate, is intensely alluring to experience; indeed, reflecting upon the larger series in terms highly reminiscent of the present work, the artist describes: “[In] the Greek Alphabet series which starts in 1976 and lasts through 1979…What I discovered is that philosophically I don’t like either/or situations. I prefer neither/nor—that is what the black and white paintings taught me. I found that there was a third entity out there: not black, not white, but existing over there in those greys.” (The artist cited in “In Conversation: Jack Whitten with Jarrett Earnest, The Brooklyn Rail, 1 February 2017)
