Works in the collection
The five colour screenprints from 1972 were exhibited that year in Sydney at Watters Gallery, in a show that included wire mesh sculptures of three dimensional geometric shapes, similar to those depicted in the prints. The sculptures were made from reinforcing mesh and explored new sculptural ideas sparked by a chance encounter the previous year, in which Flugelman observed shadows cast by a mesh door on a moving vehicle that created new geometric forms in the sunlight. When showing the sculptures, the artist shone strong lights through them, exploring their three dimensionality, while inserting a kinetic element with the use of alternating lights that affected their shadows (see Peter Pinson, Flugelman, Boorowa (NSW), Watermark Press, 2008, pp 25-26). The formal and spatial questions raised in the sculptures were developed in the screenprints. These depicted geometric forms - pyramids, spheres, cubes and tetrahedrons - with each plane allotted a different colour, giving the shapes a dynamic three dimensionality on the flat picture plane of the screen print.
