Mosset's Tic Tac Toe Series is a self-mocking and self-critical summary of his work from 1968 to the present. In it he cites his own early black-and-white circle paintings (1966-74), that here become colorful, circular “shaped canvases,” while the others recall his paintings of large intertwining crosses. By forming numerous individual “objects” out of canvas, Mosset questions painting’s traditional rectangular format and its compositional unity, which here is destroyed because the work is comprised of small, individual “o”- and “x”-shaped canvases arranged in the form of a simple tic-tac-toe game.
