Two stripes of translucent jade green create a highway pattern through the center of this rich purple sculpture. Saturated, hypnotic colors that are sweet and enchanting, but never static.
Like the best of Vasa's work, depending on how you position the piece, different colors will emerge, overlap or recede.
Similarly, depending on how you illuminate the piece, whether with natural light or electric from above - the colors take on different intensities with varying translucency.
This work is ideal size. It has major presence standing, whether on a plinth, desk or mantle and equally fascinating on one its sides.
Vasa is a Senior Professor of Design at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) where he has taught color theory for many years.
For nearly nearly 50 years he has been working in acrylics; whether on canvas or through sculpture.
