G - "The title --'G' stands for Gestaltung [Formation] --of a magazine founded by Hans Richter in 1923 with the intention of making it 'the organ of Constructivists in Europe.' The first number contained a seminal article by Van Doesburg entitled 'Elemental Formation'. He distinquished two opposing modes of expression. The art of the past, which he called 'decorative', depended on individual taste and intuition. In contrast to this the art of the present [by which he meant Constructivism] he called 'monumental' or 'formative'. He claimed that Constructivist art is no longer impulsive or intuitional but composition in accordance with objective aesthetic principles and that the Constructivist has 'conscious control of his elemental means of expression'."[Osborne, Harold, editor. The Oxford C ompanion to Twentieth-Century Art. Oxford University Press. 1988.]

Generative Art - "A form of geometrical abstraction in which a basic element is made to ' generate' other forms by rotation, etc. of the initial form in such a way as to give rise to an intricate design as the new forms touch each other, overlap, recede or advance with complicated variations. A lecture on 'Generative Art Forms' was given at the Queen's University, Belfast Festival in 1972 by the Romanian sculptor Neagu, who also founded a Generatiave Art Group. Generative art was also practised among others by Eduardo McEntyre and Miguel Ángel Vidal [1928- ] in the Argentine."[Osborne, Harold, editor. The Oxford C ompanion to Twentieth-Century Art. Oxford University Press. 1988.]

Grattage - "Name given to the process devised by Max Ernst for transferring the method of Frottage from drawing to oil painting. The name was also given to a process invented by Esteban Francès c. 1938. A superimposed layer of paint was worked with a razor blade so that unexpected and unplanned shapes from under layers of paint showed through, creating an iridescent brilliance. The method was adopted by the Surrealists as a technique for gaining access to the unconscious creativity."[Osborne, Harold, editor. The Oxford C ompanion to Twentieth-Century Art.
