Jo Baer likes to work in series in order to study the effect of subtle variations. This painting is from a group of twelve that differ in size (large and small), shape (square, rectangle, vertical, and horizontal), color (blue, green, purple, and yellow), and hue (intense, pale, grayed, and bright). Although at first glance the canvas might seem void or blank, its “imagery” in point of fact consists of a vertical rectangle of white surrounded by a thin black border, and just within that border, a slim line of grayed yellow. Despite its austerity, the painting offers viewers an immersive experience.
