The six works in this series are among the last Spencer worked on before her death in 1998. The series consists of six identically sized panels arranged in sequence. Each panel is divided into horizontal bands or blocks of colour of differing size, no one colour being repeated in the same image. Spencer places stripes of different hue, tone and intensity next to one another, exploring the affect one colour has in its neighbours. In the internal formal relations operating within each work, and also in the compositional breadth established within the group as a whole, the central tenets of Spencer's work - clarity and rational authority - achieve an expression which is at once grand and understated. The paintings were produced during a residency at Churchill College, Cambridge. However, illness made working difficult and the final painting was completed by an assistant working to her instructions, in the week she died.
