Espai ple, 1971

Full Space, 1971
Painting, 205 x 199 cm
During a long and eclectic career, between 1970 and 1973 Robert Llimós produced a series of minimalist graphic and geometric explorations that took the form of rhythmically repeated calligraphic strokes, superimposed lines, and repeated circles and lines, filling drawings, tarpaulins and large canvases. In these works Llimós creates a relationship of tense lines on the support until they occupy the entire surface, becoming the sole protagonists. Freed from the restrictions of representation, the work is constructed as a pure exercise in rhythmic structuring, which is not only graphic but gestural.
