The brush strokes and layered paint are so cool up close. Wondering how he "saw" the bigger picture while painting less than a foot away. And he was older when he did this series. Perhaps that was an advantage?

Mid-Centuria explores art, design and décor from Bauhaus to Mid Century Modern and beyond. Covering both fine and applied art forms, which encompass painting, sculpture, mosaics, pottery, glass, ceramics, textile and furniture. While mainly focused on original period pieces, contemporary items that capture the original genre’s essence are also included.
Pablo Palazuelo (1916-2007) was a Spanish painter and sculptor. He won the Kandinsky Prize in 1952. His attention became focused on the nature of "form" itself rather than on what it represented. In 1953 his investigation into form led to his discovery: Trans-geometría-the rhythms of nature translated into plastic art. This new way of seeing was initially expressed in his Solitudes series shown in his first solo exhibition in 1955.
