Original Serigraph Inward Eye Richard Anuszkiewicz c1970
Item# 8722    $1300
Original Serigraph Inward Eye Richard Anuszkiewicz c1970

One of 10 original serigraphs in the 1970 "Inward Eye" Edition by Richard Joseph Anuszkiewicz (b. 1930), pencil signed by the artist, and numbered 285/500. The image measures 25 7/8 by 19 5/8 inches; the frame measures 25 x 31 inches. Excellent condition. Framed to museum standards by the Chester Gallery in Chester CT, known as Sol Lewitt's framer of choice. Anuszkiewicz, one of the foremost op artists of the mid-twentieth century, is widely known for his vibrating color combinations and use of simple geometric and linear forms to explore the nature of color and visual perception. Anuszkiewicz’s work is carefully (almost scientifically) planned and executed. His compositions are symmetrical, uniform, and flat; they offer little in terms of physical depth and space. Technically superb, the work is impersonal and cool, focusing solely on color and its function as the subject of his images. Inward Eye offers a compilation of the diverse compositional approaches and color experiments that is typical of Anuszkiewicz’s work in his early career. Inward Eye was published by the Aquarius Press and printed in Baltimore in 1970. The complete edition consists of 10 images with illuminating text by William Blake. These serigraphs are difficult to photograph because the motion in the images fools the camera. The complete set of images and text are presented in this exhibition: http://www.uwyo.edu/artmuseumimages/docs/anuszkiewiczcurriculum2.pdf This item is on display in our gallery at Clock Tower Antiques Center and can be seen in-person by visiting 824 E Main Street Branford, CT 06405.
