“I do not choose (the world view) of my parents, the Mediterranean, I choose America. I was born here. Today we are beginning to discover it. A distant culture that reappears, old and new. A new world. In the ancient culture, matter and meaning were fused together. The rock was not only a rock; idea and meaning were turned into rock. A logic of forms, volumes, lines, colors. A conception of space and time, different from that of Europe”


—Alejandro Puente, “La importancia de América” [The importance of the Americas]

University of Morón, Argentina, 1989
