"J'essaie de faire quelque chose qui épargnera l'angoisse aux autres? J'essaye d'apporter de la sérénité - une harmonie qui n'existe pas dans le monde réel." (1965: in 'Signals', talk with Jean Clay) Also in 'Florence' Raphael Soto wanted to go beyond the materiality of the painting. By replacing the plexiglass on top of the painted canvas (as in former works) with wires and metal rods he attempted to build a world of vibrations.
