Catalogue Note

"Szyszlo's world includes whatever can be embraced by the imagination, from nature to the frontiers of fantasy, where the world that appeals to the tactile sense may produce rotund images. A world that is possible within the rich imagination of those who are aware of the limits but who actually do not have any; this is where we find the roots of the entire visual universe that can come into being and that we are free to use." 
-Mario Vargas Llosa, Fernando de Szyszlo, Bogotá 1991, p. 138
