Arturo Luz has evolved his own visual vocabulary, characterized by basic geometric forms, such as circles, squares, lines, and rectangles, which are then painted in a limited range of colors. Here, Luz embodies a profoundly anti-materialist, anti-utilitarian philosophy. Embracing impersonality, his exploration of rationality — he determination of a universal order — finds logical expression through a style remarkable for its clarity and directness.
