Louisiana poster featuring the work, Sunglow , (1968), by American painter, printmaker and sculptor, Richard Joseph Anuszkiewicz (1930–2020) – published in conjunction with the 2016 Louisiana exhibition of Op Art, Kinetic Art: An Abstract Art Form That Makes use of optical phenomena, which in particular must find its meaning in the viewer's own sensory apparatus - perceptual art. Op Art gained enormous impact, also in fashion, design and advertising.
Anuszkiewicz was one of the founders and foremost exponents of Op Art. Op Art - Optical Art - broke out in Europe in the mid-1950s with its own geometric aesthetic as an extension of constructivist and concrete art. As kinetic art, it aims to influence our senses with visual disturbances and works in motion (kinetic comes from the Greek, kinetikos - about movement).
In 1964, Life magazine called Anuszkiewicz "one of the new wizards of Op". Anuszkiewicz was concerned with optical changes that occur when different high-intensity colors are applied to the same geometric configurations. Most of his work includes visual studies of formal structural and color effects, many of them nested square shapes, similar to the work of his mentor, the German artist, Josef Albers (1888 - 1976), also represented at Louisiana.
