Elmar Kits Composition 1966 tempera, cardboard 40.5 × 57 cm

Several works that were on display at the exhibition in 1966 directly addressed relations between man and society, others gravitated towards surrealism, still others dealt purely with form and colour. The organic development of Kits’s semi-abstract paintings from his earlier works is mentioned in reviews, although the differences are rather large. Painter Ilmar Malin notes in one review that there are “people in their endlessly abundant possibilities of states” in Kits’s art but that there is also internal tension and an abundance of viewpoints.
