"I was trying to break into colour a bit more… not high pitched, but richer colour, trying to bring the colour in and retain sculptural form. One of the most colourful screenprints, nevertheless its colour is somewhat tempered. Senbergs believes that when his images are too colourful, the image is weaker, distracting attention from structure. Similarly he also deliberately eliminates figures because they suggest scale or humanize the space – in these early works he was most attracted to evocative ambiguity."
