About the artwork
These colorful lithographs are brilliant examples of Cruz-Diez's distinctive brand of op art translated into printerly form and clearly bearing the stamp of this legendary Venezuelan artist. Dedicating his practice to the exploration of color, line, and visual perception, Cruz-Diez continually engages the viewer in the act of seeing, his works changing colors relative to the position of the spectator, giving a sense of movement through the moiré effect. By achieving precisely this effect, these magnificent works are instantly recognizable Cruz-Diez originals.
