Object Description: Ary Brizzi’s geometric paintings are elegant, technically rigorous, and conversant with Kinetic and Op art of the 1960s. At the time, Brizzi painted compositions of thin parallel bands that generated optical vibrations. In this example, the subtle color gradations and precise change in trajectory of the blue, black, and gold lines suggest two mirrored shapes that seem to overlap in a shallow space. Brizzi’s use of a diamond-shaped canvas and vibrating cerulean blues enhances the dynamism of this piece.
