When I arrived to Paris (…) I was, at that time, very intrigued by abstraction, as I had been before by Cubism. At the same time I realised that those neo-Cubist still lifes were beginning to lose interest for me; so I began to simplify the composition of those still lifes and to remove the elements that made up a more or less figurative vision, paying much more attention to the form itself and not to what it represented.

Pablo Palazuelo developed an abstract style with a geometric base that invites to think of his work as a speculative model of the universe. His vision of nature interrupted the traditional view of the landscape and abandoned its horizontal or empirical conception in favour of a vertical, aerial and abstract one – based on number, line and energy-.

This attitude guided his work from the second half of the fifties, when he formulated the constructive and aesthetic principle of “transgeometry”. Transgeometry made geometry and emotion converge. Palazuelo made use of this notion to translate the rhythms of the material that shapes the universe.
