This small silkscreen highlights the aesthetic appeal Fruhtrunk extolled via his large, geometric constructions, painted with simplicity and boldness of colour. In this small adaptation of a painting from 1964, the inks that cover the blackness of the wove appear to be velvet like in both appearance and touch. Perhaps Fruhtrunk is commenting on surface values, or the physicality of art as a construction to convey a narrative: socially self-reflexive and imbued with the ideas that the weak is over powered by another force, or conversely, both forces living in some kind of symbiosis in order for creativity to be fulfilled. Either way, unique to Fruhtrunk’s work is the inner life his geometric abstractions emanate.
