"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, MIT
