Object Description: A cofounder of the Association of Concrete Art and Invention, Alfredo Hlito synthesized his interests in abstraction and Marxism. Many leftist artists favored social realism. Hlito, however, believed figurative art was deceptive and illusionism interfered with the perception of reality. He advocated instead an art made of concrete plastic elements such as color, line, and form. In this painting, Hlito generates a sense of visual harmony through simple curves in complementary red and green. While members of the Association valued precision, his approach to geometry is intuitive and never exact.
