1978, Opening

Encre de Chine sur bristol | Collection particulière

For his works on Bristol paper Mennessons mostly chose square formats. Drawn with a ruler, lines in Indian ink, all equally thick, rotate round the white centre and their motion seems to be hanging in the space. Like spider-legs they spread in accurately-calculated acute and obtuse angles and give life to the limited space by making an “Opening” in the surface of the paper.
