Light is Colour Artist Research

Ambiguous Structure No.92, 1969, Jean- Pierre Yvaral

Screen Shot 2017-03-12 at 20.00.01

Ambiguous Structure No.92, 1969, was made using acrylic paint on a square board. It is an abstract painting made up of geometrical shapes using blues, greys, red and orange tones. Yvaral arranges these colours in a way which creates a three dimensional effect, like an optical illusion.

The three dimensional effect makes the flat painting look like it protrudes out to make a sculpture. The painting seems to come from the centre due to the lighter colour. This is an important piece of work to look at during ‘Light is Colour’ as it is inspiring to create screen prints that look like an illusion and create paper sculptures that are intriguing and complex like the painting shown above.
