Zanis Waldheims - Geometrical Abstractions, 1970.

Each object, curve and line represents a philosophical concept or the interplay of more than one concept. In a very real sense, the images are an abstraction of those ideas and an attempt to find unity between them. The articulation of a unifying philosophy in visual form drove production of these images. Once the correspondence of shapes to ideas is understood, then it becomes possible to decode the individual pieces of art. Geometrical abstraction consists in imagining a set of rules, associated to a set of primary geometrical forms, to illustrate and/or give an visual idea of the complexity of the human thought, in a language which seeks at the same time sensibility and reason.
