Venezuela's primary exponent of Kinetic and Op art, Jes's Soto (1923-2005) is one of the most important Latin American artists of the twentieth century. Here, in conversations with Ariel Jim nez, Soto recounts his childhood in Ciudad Bolivar, Venezuela; his first encounters with painting; his unending search for "thinking" time and space as dimensions beyond pictorial representation; and the development of his ideas that finally lead him to the creation of his famous Penetrables, large kinetic sculptures through which the viewer walks. This volume is a revised and expanded edition of Conversaciones con Jes's Soto (2001), which served as the inspiration for the Fundaci n Cisneros' Conversaciones/ Conversations series.
