Catalogue Note

“No contemporary artist has succeeded in infusing anorganic matter with such life and lending it such irresistible evocative force as has Antoni Tàpies over the past decades. His pictures, recalling hermetically sealed sections of wall, possess a concreteness and immediacy that challenge the viewer to experience their sheer tactile presence and their gestural markings as components of a creative process based on a seemingly inexhaustible evolution form. ”

Andreas Franzke, Ed., Tàpies, Spain 1992, p. 7
