By employing large, dramatic space, Miro is able to create a visual world within the framework of Joan Miró Graphics, 1961. The viewer is inundated and figuratively drowned in color; his use of various spatters, blotches, dribbles, and drips integrate the factor of gravity and spatial orientation. The layers upon layers of different painting methods give depth to the work. During the later years of the abstract expressionist era from which Jackson Pollock rose, Graphismes is an homage to his famed work and esteemed colleague. It is a colorful and lively piece, full of energy and movement that is translated through its large scale and enveloping experience and of swirling pinks, blues, and yellows. When discussing the concept of space within his work, Miro once stated, "an empty space, an empty horizon, an empty plain, something laid bare that has always moved me very much. In my pictures what counts is the empty space peopled by something tiny; it gives me the feeling of immensity."
