Carlos Cruz Diez (Caracas, Venezuela 1923 - )


About

He began his research on color alongside the Kinetic Movement of the 60s. His reflection on art has expanded our ideas about color to the point where today we can understand that perceptions of chromatic phenomena do not necessarily have to be associated with form. Cruz-Diez has conceived his proposition by what he qualifies as spatial structures, “Chromostructure” or media for chromatic events, giving origin to what we know as “Physichromie,” “Transchromie,” “Induction Chromatique,” “Couleur Additive” and “Chromosaturation.” These are the focus of all his research and works — works in which he shows that color, when it interacts with the observer, is transformed into an autonomous event capable of invading space without the aid of form, without narrative or symbols.
