Constructive universalism


A style developed by pioneer artist Torres-Garcia, he says constructive universalism reflects the artist&#39;s passion for &quot;geometry, order, synthesis, construction and rhythm.&quot; A gridded ideogram-like structure, made of the number ten, based on the proportions of the Golden Section, it is made up of compartment-like rectangles. Within each cell there are different signs that have a strong linguistic quality and relate to autobiographical, mathematical, spiritual, or metaphysical concerns. Within his fairly well defined repertory of signs and symbols, there are frequent references to the pre-Hispanic world including ideas about the relationship of man to the cosmos. <br>
