This monochrome wood relief is part of a series that Jean (Hans) Arp produced in the late 1920s and early 1930s in which white amoebic shapes float in random configurations that suggest cellular life or planetary movement. The object-like nature of Constellation, in which the frame is an integral part of the composition, renegotiates the boundaries between painting and sculpture.
