Fajardo present about eight works produced between the decades of 1960 and 1980, among them “Neutral”, one of his first works, from 1966. “Neutral” It consists of a transparent acrylic cube in whose interior there is another, virtual, formed by a path which runs its six surfaces. The work was first presented at the show Discovery of America, na Rex Gallery & Sons, in 1966. To be sold, It is not acquired hub itself, but an instruction manual to assemble it. In addition to the historical “Neutral”, two works will be presented in less known Formica, “Rain Time” and “Tonal time”, Both of 1972. The two pieces are part of a series of about forty works that are composed of the same geometric shapes in different color combinations, each corresponding to any time of the day. The stand will also feature the work “Untitled” from 1989, work made up of hundreds of stacked bricks forming an inverted pyramid. What we see is inside the pyramid, although it may also be understood as surface and volume as, generating an exciting optical effect.

Investigating the perception in the relationship between colors, forms, surfaces and transparencies, the four works well illustrate one of the main ideas exploited by Fajardo: to that the artwork can also be ordered by anyone, industrial materials consisting of, are carriers of an idea that goes beyond the making.
