Six centuries of artistic creation
One of the many studies carried out in the 1960s using common materials such as plywood and industrial paint. The relationship between the geometry of the support - a square - and the geometry of the colour lines - which form a rhombus - interact in a geometric rhythmic modulation that raises the question whether we are actually facing a square or a rhombus. In 1966, thanks to a scholarship, Jorge Pinheiro travelled across Europe, where he discovered new forms of expression, such as geometric abstractionism and constructivism. This experience led him to a first break with figuration, beginning one of the most fertile periods of work and reflection around geometric abstraction and colour, developing a thorough research on geometric form and modulations, gradations and chromatic rhythms.
