"No internal edge echoes or repeats the defining edges of the support; the bands seem cut from some larger and expanding chevron shape that, at the same time, is clearly delimited by interlocking with the picture's literalness. And so reciprocal is the interlocking that each expands laterally or vertically in response to the other. Thus Noland obtained a more flexible format and was no longer limited to the square."

(K. Moffat, Kenneth Noland,, New York, 1977, p. 58-60.)
