Series 2: Abstract spatiality, sensorial aspects of matter. 1979-1980


This series sprang out of an uncontrollable urge to do a painting in a really intense, totally saturated cadmium yellow. This kicked off the study of another dimension I hadn’t addressed in the previous series: spatiality.

To do this, I forced form even further, to the extent that it either disappeared altogether or became an abstract geometric limit, a container for the saturated charge of pure color, applied with pigments mixed with a little latex and water on unprimed canvas impregnated on the back with sealer.

The qualities of pure color, together with the tactile sensations of the pigments mixed with a little latex and water on much bigger supports, added a sensation of spatiality to the paintings in this series.
