Biography

Philippe Decrauzat professes an interest in the “direct relationship Op art provides to the viewers and the way it influences their minds.” Decrauzat's monochromatic, geometric sculptures, wall paintings, and installations are rooted in the traditions of Op art and Minimalism established in the 1960s and ’70s. Yet in subtly manipulating the relationships between his artworks and the spaces in which they are situated—arranging his works as a sort of navigational tool in a gallery, or arraying stripe paintings to create effects of light and shadow—Decrauzat imbues his historically rooted work with a 21st-century sensibility.
