Commissioned by the Library in 1986. The artist evokes a long tradition of symbolic guardianship on public buildings, appropriate to a library. The ideas of ambiguity, contradiction and confrontation are manifested in compositions of hard and soft edges, contrasting colors, unexpected linear relationships and unusual shapes. The public library, with its accessibility to all ideas, regardless of opposition or contradiction, is an appropriate setting for these paintings.
