We are pleased to offer this rare and very early example of one of Vasa Mihich's famed group sculptures.

"Greek Columns" created in 1975 (and repolished in 2017) exemplifies Vasa's mastery of color dynamism. 

Composed of four columns, in cherry red, tangerine orange, sea blue and neon pink, the main colors vanish or transform depending on how they are positioned individually and in relation to their siblings. 

Perhaps most dramatically, the columns can be turned so their thinest side faces outwards and the viewer is confronted with a completely different palette. Each of the columns reveals an ombre affect: teal green morphs into indigo, pale blue becomes electric grape, tangerine orange slides into lemon and finally lime fades into a translucent yellow. 

If you are familiar with Caviar20 you probably know that Vasa was a Senior Professor of Design at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) where he taught color theory for many years.

For nearly nearly 50 years he has been working in acrylics; whether on canvas or through sculpture.

Vasa's sculptures photograph well, but to truly appreciate these works they need to be observed in person.
