CM: Jeanne Spiteris-Veropoulou's Unititled work from 1976 is characterised by the simplicity and clarity of geometric abstraction that is typical of her mature work. The composition is based on simple geometric patterns distinguished for their plainness and clarity. The rhythmic repetition of the curves and verticals that comprise this composition accentuates the constuctivist legibility of her art. The dialogue between organic and inorganic references is indirect and may be perceived through an expressionist idiosyncracy. This sculpture is structured upon cross-sectioned axes and traversed planes that emit liveliness and tension. The cut-out openings also facilitate the interaction between the work and its environment, emphasizing the relationship between light and shadow, as well as perspective and depth. In keeping with other works dating from the 1970s this Untitled work is boldly colourful. Pure colors of red, black, and gray interact in a way as to accentuate the presence of the forms and to problematize the perception of real space. Thus, her art is revealed to inventively combine the austerity of form with the playfulness of her intention.
