Variable Octave

Acrylic on Wood
54″ x 72″ x 1.5″ (overall)
5″ x 72″ x 1.5″ (each of 8 panels)

In most of its various configurations, seven of the eight panels are black (and one could choose all black in one version). But the fun is in changing one of the panels to either a red, green, blue, white or yellow panel, and then deciding where to place the color in the octave.

Other possibilities include placing more than one color in the field of black, perhaps depending on the season or one’s mood or the light. One has a range of choices.
