“[...] Objects from the artist’s childhood, those lively spools, spread through Iberê’s work for more than 30 years.Their biographical importance comes into the artist’s work as objects of his ‘reminiscences’, embodying various artistic possibilities. They bring in questions about his place in the space of the painting, his relationship with the reality and material of art, antagonistic movements energetically fighting each other within the canvases, to the obsessive attempts at almost going beyond the supports.”
Mônica Zielinsky, "A inquietude da arte," in Mônica Zielinsky, Paulo Sergio Duarte and Sônia Salztein, Moderno no limite (Porto Alegre: Fundação Iberê Camargo, 2008), 119.
