Using square steel plates coated with white baked enamel as the basic module, Jennifer Bartlett explores the fine line between representational and abstract painting. Characteristic of her work during this time, Bartlett used this module technique, basic geometric figures, and primary colors—in this case the triangle and the color red—to reveal the fragile line that separates an abstract symbol from an ordinary object, such as a house or a mountain.
