Carlos Cruz Diez
The Franco-Venezuelan artist, Carlos Cruz-Diez (Caracas, 1923 - Paris, 2019) lived and worked in Paris since 1960. Considered one of the most relevant protagonists of optical and kinetic art, an artistic trend that claims "the awareness of the instability of the real. ”His research reveals him as one of the color thinkers of the 20th century.
Carlos Cruz-Diez's plastic discourse gravitates around the chromatic phenomenon conceived as an autonomous reality that evolves in space and time, without the help of form or support, in a continuous present. His work spans eight investigations: Couleur Additive, Physichromie, Induction Chromatique, Chromointerférence, Transchromie, Chromosaturation, Chromoscope and Couleur à l’Espace.
