Challenging the notion that abstraction is a development of the modern West, Paternosto reveals its deep roots as an indigenous American tradition and shows how that tradition reverberates in the work of twentieth-century artists... In this major, paradigm-shifting book... César Paternosto offers the first comprehensive analysis of ancient Andean art - textiles, pottery, stone sculpture, and the famous lines in the Nazca desert - into one coherent whole...

Eduardo Costa

Volumetric Paintings:The Geometric Works

"… All are undone, broken apart, and reformulated in such a way that the four continents are fused and equally present in Costa's volumetric abstract

In the end, this is a most striking and significant aspect of Costa's new series, for it at once melds not only the traditions of different regions of the globe but also the past and the new and as yet completely uncharted cultural possibilities of what will certainly be an unprecedentedly global twenty-first century."
