Label Text: "The power of color is the subject of this screenprint. Spectral Cadmium is one from a suite of six prints identical in every way except the three colors with which it was created. Anuszkiewicz chose the stable, objective square as the perfect form on which to test his color theories. His concerns lay in discovering the kinds of thoughts and feelings that could be suggested and stimulated simply from placing certain colors next to each other. He was interested not only in provoking moods and emotions but if the image was dazzling enough, in simulating the illusion of physical movement (written by Nancy Sojka for Passion on Paper: Masterly Prints from the KIA Collection, 2018)."
