Label Text: Anuszkiewicz built on Josef Albers’ color theory, which demonstrated that our perception of one color is affected by adjacent colors—making certain colors seem to change hue, recede, or vibrate as a result of different color combinations. Anuszkiewicz pushed this further to explore optical effects of form and color upon the eye, becoming a leader of the Op Art movement. His juxtapositions of intense color create the illusion of movement—a rhythm of shape emerging from the energy of color.
