Historical Context:
This piece was a part of Herbert Murrie’s exhibition “Chance,” which showed in Asciano, Sienna. The exhibition followed a path through town, beginning at the Church of San Francesco, terminating at the Museum of Palazzo Corboli. The composition between different shapes, colors, textures, proportions, and harmonies becomes an abstract system similar to that of music. Leave that to happen, rather than following a plan, and it may be more authentic, richer, more alive.
