Historical Description

Of his work, Vasarely has stated "I can no longer admit an inner world and another, an outer world, apart. The within and the without communicate by osmosis, or, one might rather say: the spatial-material universe, energetic living, feeling-thinking, forms a whole, indivisible…the languages of the spirit are but the super vibrations of the great physical nature."

Vasarely is a master at both color and design. Utilizing alternating patterns of squares and circles, Vasarely creates a magnificent optical work with a sense of geometric rhythm. The circles and squares in purple, red, blue, orange, yellow, and green combine to create a rather minimalist work. The square profile adds to the geometric effect, allowing the light to cast shadows across its edges and corners, breathing life into the sculpture as one views it from all sides.

This original polystyrene wood tower features the incised signature 'Vasarely' near top. This piece was published by Pyra AG Zumikon, Switzerland.
