  1. Here Coles shows us the possibilities that Malevich, for all his vision, could not: again the Suprematist void unmoors the viewer from three-dimensional geometries, again the forced shift of perspective into no-place, but where his predecessor insists on an agreement between vertical and horizontal, Coles abandons the stale perfection of the square and other such structuralist and structuralizing notions on a field which presents both a dimensional disagreement and an intentional orientation (or an orientation of intention?). The work’s titlelessness may also be seen as a reference to and a surpassing of the Suprematist and Constructivist nomenclatures.
