Historical Description

Executed with a balance of color and form, this work creates an optical effect of relief through the use of geometric shapes and bold tones. Using varied hues of blue, black, orange, green, pink, and purple, the artist captures the viewer's attention with the effect of three dimensional forms that appear as if constantly changing. Visually engaging, this work is vibrant and creates a sense of motion through the use of a variety of lights and darks.

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).

This work is a unique original hand knotted silk tapestry.
