Núcleo (Nucleus) (1963) by Iberê CamargoIberê Camargo Foundation
This painting was created by Brazilian artist Iberê Camargo in 1963. Camargo explained the work was part of his 'conscious expression'.
The energetic and dynamic shapes within the work were inspired by movement, such as the flight of birds and the dizzying race of a car.
When creating the work, different colored paint was layered on top of one another without waiting for each layer to dry.
This texture was created with short, abstract brushstrokes, which mix the colors together.
