“Even when I use blobs, I try not to consider myself an informal painter. They are part of a scheme, they reveal a constructive intention. The paintings from this period had rhythm, consistence, cohesion. They were a structure.”(Ivan Serpa quoted in: F. Werneck Barcinski, Ivan Serpa, Rio de Janeiro, 2003, p. 35)
