Joaquín Torres-García characteristically organized his works using an underlying grid containing universal archetypes. The figure, temple, heart, clock, hammer, bottle, and vessel with its anchor symbolize different aspects of human existence, ranging from the natural, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. "Constructif en rouge et ocre" also demonstrates Torres-García’s understanding of abstraction as a process of simplification, accomplished in part through the use of a limited palette.
