About the Artist

1923 Caracas, Venezuela

Franco-Venezuelan artist born in Caracas in 1923, Carlos Cruz-Diez lives and works in Paris since 1960. He is a major protagonist in the field of Kinetic and Optical art, a movement that encourages “an awareness of the instability of reality.” His body of work has established him as one of the key twentieth-century thinkers in the realm of color.

His research, based on three color conditions: subtractive, additive and reflective has contributed to a new way of understanding the color phenomenon in art, greatly expanding its perceptual universe.

In his works he shows that color, in interaction with the viewer, becomes an autonomous, evolving reality, devoid of anecdotes, which evolves in real time and space.

His work includes several research he has called Couleur Additive, Physichromie, Induction Chromatique, Chromointerférence, Transchromie, Chromosaturation and Couleur dans l'espace.

His artworks are housed in prestigious permanent collections at institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Modern in London, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Wallraf-Richartz Museum in Cologne and the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.
