Caracas, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Caracas, Soto. Cuarenta años de creación, January1983, no. 80, illustrated
"Soto’s most important contribution could actually be, beyond the material and media he uses, the aesthetic stimulus experienced by facing unexpected constructions of nylon threads and metal rods; overall, the materialization of space and its use as an artistic element, as if it were a canvas, wood or marble."
Alfredo Boulton, in Soto, Kamakura, Museum of Modern Art, 1990, pg. XV
