This work analyses Montagne Sainte-Victoire by ‘unstacking’ shapes – a stack of shapes arranged in a certain order.
Using an axometric grid system with a 60-degree angle for the foreground, the work starts from the left side of the painting and unstacks the geometric forms of the fields and structures. Fields and houses become rectangles and triangles in patchworks of green and yellow depicting the shapes from different angles.
Moving to the middle left of the painting a transition occurs between the ‘stacks’ and the mountain. This is depicted in the yellow form that leads into the interconnecting shapes of the mountain. – a space with overlapping and integrating separate planes of colour.
