The Franco-Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez has lived and worked in Paris
since 1960. He is a major protagonist in thefield of Kinetic and Optical art, a movement that encourages “an awareness of the instability of reality.” His body of work has establishedhim as one of the key 20 century thinkers inthe realm of color. Carlos Cruz-Diez’s visual art explores theperception of color as an autonomous reality evolving in space and time, unaided by form or support, in a perpetual present.
