Robyn Denny, ‘By Day #1’, 1967, Bernard Jacobson Gallery

During the early 1960s Denny began to make large paintings using architectural forms arranged around a vertical axis. First Light, like many of Denny’s paintings from this period, has a still, meditative quality. The large rectangular shape resembles a doorway and appears to be an invitation for the viewer to enter. But at the same time, the flat areas of color and the shallow pictorial space of the background lend the painting a feeling of impenetrability.
