Julio Le Parc: Aurora, 17 Sep 2023 — 24 Dec 2023
Aurora is a solo show by Argentinian artist, painter and sculptor who has lived in France since 1958. Julio Le Parc is a precursor of kinetic art and Op Art, and winner of the International Grand Prize for Painting at the 33rd Venice Biennale in 1966. In his work, he applies the same treatment to colour as to form, using not just a few colours, but all colours, pure and unadulterated by black or white. Forms lose their individuality in favour of an active surface that can establish a visual connection with the viewer, offering a panoply of potential changes contained within each work. Each gouache or painting produced by this or that combination is for the artist a particular moment, an interpretation of the incessant movement of changing colours in which he finds himself swept up.
