It beautifully displays Yaacov Agams (Rishon LeZion, 1928-) unique perception of art and his revolutionary style, which relied upon the utilization of movement and the fourth dimension in order to gain a complete understanding of his compositions.
Using Lenticular Lithography, Agam (Rishon LeZion, 1928-) over laps multiple graphic images by using a lenticular screen, that reveals and conceals portions of each image. Through the use of this highly sensitive technique, a fluid metamorphosis occurs when the viewer moves in front of the work, just as the viewer defines the picture plain it shifts, creating a new design.
Of his career Agam (Rishon LeZion, 1928-) has stated, “My endeavor has been to create a kind of visual graphic art, existing not only in space, but in time; one in which the form develops and evolves, thus procuring an unforeseeable infinity of plastic situations flowing out of one another.” With this piece, Agam has created dual scenes of de-structured rectangular shapes, accented by sharp geometric patterns and highlighted with bursts of magenta, teal, blue, and yellow.
As one of the great Optical artists of the twentieth century, Agam’s (Rishon LeZion, 1928-) work can be compared to that of Vasarely and Yvaral.
