The Easel

In memoriam: Carlos Cruz-Diez (1923-2019)

Colour, Cruz-Diez realized, is unstable. His influential career was spent making works in which colour changes with the viewer’s position and the surrounding light. Collectively they deal with a central preoccupation of modern art – how we perceive. “[Colours] are permanently in the process of becoming. This work is not happening in the past. It is forever in the present.” Images are here.
