This earlier work in oil by Sacha Kolin clearly shows the influence of studies in color harmony and the push/ pull theories expoused by Hans Hoffman. In fact, Kolin hosted experimental color workshop in her studio with Bauhaus graduate Hannes Beckman in the 1950s. Using subtle shifts in hue and value Kolin creates visual depth in the otherwise flat planar composition.
