Gallery Notes:

Influenced by Mondrian, Gilbert’s early painting was focused on creating clear geometric planes, block colour and an underlying linear structure. This focus was translated into three dimensional form in his sculpture, in which he was greatly influenced by De Stijl in concentrating on actively open space. By the early 1960s when  Structure 15 A was made, Gilbert was  using form to reflect its surroundings and refract the light in its environment. This piece is an elegant example of this exploration, with the polished planes of  aluminium intersecting on an axis. Gilbert went on to win first prize for sculpture at the Tokyo Biennale in 1965.
