Balance, motion, suspension and tension form the guiding principles of the work of Sue Fuller (1914Ė2006), one of the most innovative artists in the field of geometric abstraction in the postwar United States. Initially a prominent figure in Stanley William Hayterís famous New York print workshop Atelier 17, Fuller developed an interest in geometric abstraction in the mid-1940s, which led her to adopt string as a tool to create three-dimensional compositions in a range of colors and varying densities across a light framing structure. Fuller is also known for her use of unconventional materials sourced from industrial sectors, including fishing lines and synthetic surfaces such as Lucite, which conserve the compositionsí delicate tension and vivid color schemes in pristine condition to this day. Sue Fuller: Into the Composition is the first monographic study of Fullerís work and includes contributions by art historians Alex J. Taylor and Christina Weyl.
