Catalogue Note

“The square represented – and still represents for me – the most genuinely human form, in the sense that it is a pure creation of man. The square, and geometrical figures in general, are purely the invention of the human spirit, distinctly intellectual creations, and what particularly interests me about them is that they don't have a’specific dimension…a geometric shape can be infinitely small or infinitely large, it doesn’t have measurable limitations and thus completely escapes the traditional anthropocentrism of Western art.”

Jesús Rafael Soto, Jesús Soto: In Conversation with Ariel Jiménez, New York, 2011, p. 45
