Jesus Rafael Soto Art Brochure

Azul con Rojo presents a perfect opportunity to appreciate Soto’s genius in balancing the spheres of physics, geometry, and human perception. Here, he utilizes a simple design of carefully calculated spatial and color relationships of two large squares – one of red and one of blue – staged against contrasting backgrounds of white and black. Upon that backdrop, he offers a geometric construct containing smaller squares that appear to float above a shimmering, vibratory ground. It is a kinetic work that depends on the viewer’s involvement, creating the illusion of movement as the observer moves in relation to the construct.
