VASARELY "CTA 102 #4" SILKSCREEN, 1966
Victor Vasarely (1906-1997) is considered as the father of the Op Art movement.
"Op Art" is an abbreviation for 'Optical Art'.
Typically the best examples of this genre display hypnotic abstract patterns that seem to be in motion.
Other works suggest depths of field made from detailed arrangements of forms and colors.
The work is flat but the patterns suggest three-dimensional creations.
"Op Art" developed at the same time as "Pop Art" - together they epitomize the progress and aesthetic of the 1960's.
This is an exceptional example of Vasarely's work. The center arrangement seems to be pulsating or about to push beyond the surface.
A lovely palette that is both understated and confident creating an overall arrangement that is subtle yet with personality.
