In May 1981, Acevedo went to Greece to visit
his parents and brother David for an extended stay of about 5 months.
They had moved there as Nick (Acevedo Sr.) and David were working
with a civil engineering and construction firm based in Athens.
Still preoccupied with the main motif of his image
called Slated Breakfast (the two woman interpenetrated by zoomorphic
covered cubes) Victor painted one last variant called Sad Voyeur
Watching Orthogonal Womanhood. The curious stair-stepping pattern
on the composition's right is based on orthographically projected
cubes. In this case the cubical clusters house zoomorphic data.
enjoyed the self-similarity and tension between the hexagonal housings
for the cubes and their corresponding hex-based rotational symmetry.
The interpenetrating form was inspired by the well-known triad of
interpenetrating golden mean rectangles that can be used as scaffolding
to circumscribe an icosahedron.
