Description

“Like everything that surpasses us and lies beyond the reach of our will, Gego’s work seems to have neither beginning nor end. It appears capable of continuously growing and changing, of developing like vegetation, like all living forms, accepting and responding to the transformations and imperfections, the vicissitudes and accidents of life.”

-Iris Peruga, "From Matter to Space: The Game of Creation or Creation as Game?" in Questioning the Line: Gego in Context, Houston 2003, p. 47
