Geometry in movement
The circle is a recurrent motif throughout Gabriel Orozco's (*1962, Xalapa, Mexico) oeuvre. As of early 2000, the artist has been using circles, which he distributed across the canvas, based on the movement of a knight in a game of chess. Circles were halved, then quartered in horizontal and vertical directions. The motives are colored in blue, red and gold/yellow. As the work unfolds around a centerpoint, the artist appears to blur his commitment to geometry, celebrating movement and leaving the chance to variation, making the composition absolutely unique.
