Phyllis Mark at work on 'Key Form,''Six Foot Octagon' behind her to right.

The artist used a rubber mallet (dead blow hammer) to assemble interlocking forms, such as the two separately fabricated octagons of Six Foot Octagon, behind her.

From the introduction to the exhibition by the Director of the Fort Lauderdale Museum, George S. Bolge: "The works of Donneson, Gillespie, Mark and Reder seem to be creating relationships which are seemingly very simple yet, at the same time, are beyond the viewer's grasp. It seems as though an inexplicable coherence works inside their pieces to generate external aspects of their physical being which are always unexpected because they are unpredictable."
