Albers' geometrically oriented drawings and prints stand in surprising contrast to his paintings. His “Graphic Tectonic” series, dating from 1941-42, as well as his “Structural Constellations” series from 1949, also known as “Transformations of a Scheme,” are both executed in a muted palette of gray shades. They demonstrate the perception of space on a flat surface and in them the impression of seeing no longer concurs with the recording of individual elements, but rather the grasping of dominant structural patterns that are ordered into a logical whole. In the “Structural Constellations,” Albers avoids weighting significant and marginal patterns and thus the structure seems to leap about in front of the viewer’s eyes.
