from a radical contrast between opposite and absolute straight lines (only horizontal or only vertical)

 

to the genesis of small squares, that is, entities constituted by a relationship between horizontal and vertical.

 

From single squares dragged by the straight lines in random order...

 

..towards more ordered sequences of colors which generate symmetries,
a measurable, i.e. finite space within the infinite lines. An horizontal relationship between two vertical symmetries generate a plane (2).

 

We see new planes of different size, proportion and color in which the relationship between horizontal and vertical, which was precariously expressed with the little squares, is consolidated.

 

More extended areas develop an interior space which frees itself
from the ever-changing space of the lines showing a more permanent balance between horizontal and vertical thrusts (12, 13 14)..

 

..up to a single entity (17) which unites in itself the three primary colors.
The initial multiplicity of yellow, red, and blue squares, scattered along infinite straight lines, is now concentrated into a finite unity of those three colors.

 

Unity then reopens to the multiplicity of planes and little squares from which it was generated. We thus observe a process that from the multiple tends towards the one and then from the one flows back into the multiple.
