Inspired by his studies of music theory, Larry Poons developed a series of paintings and prints in the 1960s that brought the mathematical and aesthetic principles of music to painting. In this print, Poons draws a faint grid-like structure across the surface of the paper, filling the resulting pattern of squares and parallelograms with black circles and ellipses. He places these rounded forms within and along the lines of the grid following a logical system, as if they are notes on the measure of a musical score.

While Poons did not intend to create a single form from this scattering of circles and ellipses, can you connect them together in any way?
