Source belongs to Hammersely’s series of geometric paintings, which he titled “geometries.” They are contemporaneous with two of his other abstract painting series as well as recurring excursions into figurative painting, after he turned to abstraction in the late 1940s. They are usually composed of a basic grid of nine squares into each of which he introduces a new color or diagonal. However, his palette remained quite limited here in comparison to the “organics” series that complemented the “geometries.”
