Historical Description

This intriguing piece beautifully displays Yaacov Agam's unique perception of art and his revolutionary style, which relied upon the utilization of movement and the fourth dimension in order to gain a complete understanding of his compositions.

Using Lenticular Lithography, Agam overlaps multiple graphic images by using a lenticular screen that reveals and conceals portions of each image. Through the use of this highly sensitive technique, a fluid metamorphosis occurs when the viewer moves in front of the work, just as the viewer defines the picture plain it shifts, creating a new design.

Of his career Agam has stated, "My endeavor has been to create a kind of visual graphic art, existing not only in space, but in time; one in which the form develops and evolves, thus procuring an unforeseeable infinity of plastic situations flowing out of one another." With this piece, Agam has created multiple scenes of de-structured shapes, accented by sharp geometric patterns and highlighted with bursts of vibrant color.

Created in 1985, this piece is from the Mexico Suite. It is hand signed by Yaacov Agam (Rishon LeZion, 1928 - ) in blue marker in the lower right margin and numbered 34/99 in blue marker in the lower left margin.
