Historical Description

Victor Vasarely Majus II, 1974 utilizes geometric patterns to elucidate the artists visual language of merging geometric abstractions to visualize and represent the building blocks of the universe. Comfortably inhabiting both the worlds of art and science, Vasarely approached art from a systematic perspective. Using hues from the spectrum of colors, Vasarely engages the viewer by coordinating the space into a repetition of squares and circles that alternate depending on the layer. The first layer contains squares that decrease in number as they circle towards the center of the composition. Within the colored boxes are circles and squares that alternate, filled in with complimentary colors that contrast the background layer. By creating a style of fine art that could have universal appeal across artificial social divisions, Vasarely created something unique: a sincere and joyful aesthetic experience that, although abstract, can easily be enjoyed by anyone who can see.
