Catalogue Note

"The shape gives rise to the color, which is transformed from vision into sensation; it is projected into space, where it tints the atmosphere, and becomes iridescent on touching the plane. The movement is caused, not merely by the position of the viewer, but above all by the intensity and motion of the illumination. Sunlight - natural light, in other words - is ideal for appreciating the magical, infinite values of these three-dimensional objects." 

-Luis Tomasello, 1964
