Stroking a closed color field, which is furthermore situated in the middle of the sheet, is an action that leads toward an understanding of the paint as something that creates a visual output on the carrier surface. The action of filling the white gap in the middle shows Blacky’s understanding of it as something that produces a distinct area on the sheet of paper. This is more a formal conception than a simple examination of the materials.
