Catalogue Note

“Without losing the tactile and optical ​​characteristics of wool, Eduardo Terrazas achieves in this series of works an expressive and dramatically rhythmic-like quality. The practice of white-on-white sanctified by Kazimir Malevich is enriched by a variety of small, fleeting and an almost audible range of shades. Moreover, by employing precise contrasts and color values, the artist frees his works from the typical chromatic repertoire of [Mexican] Huichol--textile ceremonial crafts--a source of inspiration for Terrazas." -Raquel Tibol, 1972
