This hand painted acrylic on wood sculpture is hand signed by Victor Vasarely (1906 – 1997) in black ink in the lower left and numbered 50/50 in black ink next to the signature.
Executed with a balance of color and form, this work creates an optical effect of relief through the use of shape and tones. Using a variety of hues in blue, red, green, and purple, the artist captures the viewer’s attention with the visual effect of two three dimensional forms on a flat surface . 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).
