Historical Description

This magnificent work by Victor Vasarely displays an intricate interplay of green optical figures against a clear background in a three-dimensional medium. It offers a fascinating visual puzzle that engages the viewer in efforts to understand its complexity. Vasarely incorporates factors such as transparency, luminescence, and geometric compatibility into account when creating this piece, leaving us with an engaging work capable of being viewed from 360 degrees, with the images shifting slightly from each point of observance.

Discussing his thoughts on abstraction, Vasarely stated, "The celebrated transition from representational to nonrepresentational art is only one of the stages in profound transformation taking place in the plastic arts. The term 'abstract' in painting refers not to an established fact, but to an irresistible trend toward plastic creation different from the kind we already know." (Vasarely 1978, 13).

Created in 1967, this silkscreen on Plexiglas box is from an unnumbered edition.
