Victor Vasarely Op Art Acrylic Cube Sculpture Vintage

US$2,800

About

This four sided every changing graphic optical Op Art lucite vintage cube sculpture by Victor Vasarely is vintage from the 1970s. They were produced in a large edition at the time but not numbered. It is a silkscreen acrylic. It is not signed but his 100% authentic and his original work indeed. Each side is a different color and has a different optical illusion. He was a Hungarian born French artist who used geometric shapes and colorful graphics to appease the eye and palette. The cube goes on the lucite angled base and can be placed in 4 different sides with 4 different colors. This is one sculpture that changes with all sides and each way presents a different graphic illusion. This one is more difficult to find now. Mesmerizing! This is a fabulous desk accessory or object or sculpture for a credenza, console or cocktail table.

About the Artist

Victor Vasarely

Widely considered the grandfather of Op art, the French-Hungarian painter Victor Vasarely (1906–97) created eye-popping geometric abstractions that play with the viewer’s perception of depth, perspective and motion. A classic example is the 1937 Zebra, which consists of undulating black and white stripes that suggest the form of the titular animal through optical trickery. The work is often credited as the earliest Op art painting. Such illusions were more than pleasing tricks for Vasarely, who insisted that “pure form and pure color can signify the world.” He wanted to “democratize” art by producing works in large editions at reasonable prices that were understandable across national and cultural boundaries. In the 1960s, he developed an alphabet plastique, or fine art alphabet, consisting of elementary visual building blocks that could be used in endless combinations to create original compositions. By employing this universal visual vocabulary and stripping away topical references, he sought to create what he called a “Planetary Folklore.” Embodying Vasarely’s singular belief that art should serve a social function, accessible to all, these innovations may perhaps be his greatest contribution to 20th-century art.
