Richard Anuszkiewicz, ‘Annual Edition ’, 1983, Alpha 137 Gallery

Each year over the course of several decades, Op Art pioneer Richard Anuszkiewicz created a different limited edition silkscreen as a holiday card for close personal friends, family, and/or individuals who were influential in his career. This stunning work is the Annual Edition for 1983. A really stunning piece of geometric Op Art! Anuszkiewicz's Annual Editions were not created for commercial use and were thus quite scarce. This particular card is unusual as it is signed on the front, and opens up to be a card -- but it is was unused - and there is no additional inscription - so it can be gifted by the buyer (collector) -- with your own inscription! A beautiful holiday card. It's unframed, but would look stunning framed.
The sheet with the signed silkscreen measures 7.5 inches by 6 inches, but it opens up to a full card - measuring 7.6 by 11.75 inches (see images). Unframed and in very good vintage condition.

About Richard Anuszkiewicz

Combining an interest in the nature of perception with investigations into the visual and psychological resonance of color, Richard Anuszkiewicz produces paintings whose vibrant colors and geometric shapes seem to pop and pulsate off of the canvas. A student of Josef Albers and one of the leading practitioners of Op art and geometric abstraction, Anuszkiewicz explores color and form in his flat, vibrant abstractions, attempting to reveal the malleability of our perceptions of stillness and movement, depth and color.

American, b. 1930, Erie, Pennsylvania
