SUMMARY

"For those whose primary concern is to trace the parentage of artistic forms, it would be well to ignore Takis-he has no immediate relatives. His work has ancestors nonetheless. His proud Signals, the metal stems pulsating in their electronic bloom, carry the genetic coding of archaic Greek 'kouroi'-statues of naked young men who step forward with control led balance and look into the distance with radiant, enigmatic smiles. Takis' Signals also step forward and look ahead. With their self-asserting strength they are likewise descendants of the simple cycladicforms of the Aegean Islands: independent, primordial, shedding all that is pretty or petty." -From the Foreword by Gyorgy Kepes, Director of the Center for Advanced Visual Studies, MITAndersen, Wayne is the author of 'Takis: Evidence of the Unseen', published 1969 under ISBN 9780262511582 and ISBN 0262511584.
