As one of the leading artists of concrete art, Piero Dorazio was dedicated to the phenomena of light and colour in his works. Finding inspiration in Expressionism, Cubism and Surrealism, Dorazio's uvre always displayed the for him characteristic consistent geometry and structure. For his abstract visual language, Dorazio predominantly used primary colours, which he overlays, combines, strings together and repeats in a series of different patterns.
«[...] but in a different technique, in which the vertical brushstrokes along the coloured bands are dissolved in a rapid rhythmic sequence. It [the paint] evokes moments when the sunlight seems to linger and focus only on the eyes, sensations and feelings.» from: Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna Roma (Ed.,), Dorazio, Milan 1983, p. 84.
