About Mon Levinson
Considered one of the progenitors of Op art for his optically complex and illusionistic works, Mon Levinson masterfully manipulates perception with line, layers, light, and shadow. Influenced by Russian Suprematism and Constructivism, Levinson creates abstract compositions from the interplay of geometric shapes and parallel lines. In his earliest works, he layered cut paper and sheets of vinyl, imparting three-dimensionality to a two-dimensional surface, while with work in Plexiglas, Levinson has experimented with the effects of reflection and translucence, creating compelling compositions of light and shadow.
American, b. 1926, New York, New York
