Title- (Unknown) 1955

Herbert Zangs created an abstract minimalist grid out of canvas, using the material which is normally not considered an aspect of the work, he twists areas of the canvas creating ripples throughout the work. The creased object looks like it has been treated aggressively creating a caged form which comes across as restricted and aged. While looking at it you get the feeling of it holding something back, where the marks and shades on the canvas create shadows in the distant beyond the knotted enclosure.
