It was not until 1958 that I began to pick up the threads of my Catholic University show. I began to experiment with certain geometric shapes -circles, triangles and squares-in the middle of the canvas. I also began to use single stripes on either edge of the canvas in a number of so-called neo-Dada works, several of which were exhibited at the Jefferson Place Gallery in 1958. It was during this period that I did paintings in which I copied comic strips in the middle of the canvas and surrounded them with stripes.
