Carlos Cruz-Diez inaugurates Phillips’ new exhibition platform
Harriet Lloyd-Smith, Wallpaper
“Cruz-Diez’s methods oppose traditional painting whereby colour is applied once and remains static. Instead, tight stripes of stripped cardboard, aluminium and Plexiglass separate colours vertically to create the moiré effect, three-dimensional illusionary work sensitive to the slightest motion. The artist refers to these as ‘light traps’, where the surface evolves and transforms before the gripped observer.”
