"The editions covered by this catalogue are in two series: the first series is comprised of 108 editions, each containing 75 sculptures; the second series is comprised of 20 editions, each containing 75 sculptures. Each of the editions in the first series contains four shapes: triangle, parallelogram, triangular column, and sphere. Each shape is made in four different sizes. Each sculpture has two colors: for the triangle and the parallelograms there are nine different color combinations; for the triangular columns there are five different combinations, and for the spheres there are four. The second series is entirely composed of spheres-called multi-plane spheres. The spheres in the first series are made of gradients of two colors in one plane, whereas this second series is made of solid colors in multi-planes. This series is made in four different sizes-corresponding precisely to the sizes in the first series. Each size in this series comes in five different color combinations. One of the combinations contains two colors; three contain four colors: and one contains five colors. All the sculptures are made of laminated acrylic plastic. Each is signed by the artist and numbered E/75. In addition, each sculpture has a number which refers to size, shape, and color." - The Publisher
