Catalogue Note

Il ritratto distintivo di ogni Homage to the Square non risiede nell'asettica conformità a una regola, bensì nell'energia magnetica che irradia, nella forza evocativa, nella sincerità e nell'autenticità conferitegli dal rigore morale del suo artefice..."

"The distinctive trait of each and every Homage to the Square does not reside in the aseptic conformity to a rule: rather, in the magnetic energy they radiate, their evocative force, honesty and sincerity deriving from the moral integrity of their maker..."

Marco Pierini, in Josef Albers, Milan 2011, p. 32
