This period marks the end of an extensive artistic career that began in 1940, and was characterised by a constant desire to experiment with materials and forms, undiminished by the passage of time. The works of these final years feature some of Tàpies’ main subjects, such as the self-portrait, the body, death and desire, but with gestures that are now less inhibited, freer. The brushstroke has achieved greater expressivity, immediacy and communicative power, while maintaining the instinct that drove him early on in his career to seek new forms with which to capture reality and represent it in all its rawness, without filters or veils.
