Featured in this Untitled work is an instance of the ‘Constructions’ that Eric Bowen became recognised for—an egg form suspended from a projected square punctuated with circular depressions. These were mixed-media installation-like ‘paintings’ with a strongly architectonic quality in the manner the elements—the geometric shapes of circle, rectangle, square, triangle, line—were composed and held together in balance. What is breathtakingly striking about these paintings are the stillness and the balance that they celebrate along with alignment and precision.
