Carlos Cruz-Diez (Caracas, 1923) lives and works in Paris since 1960. He is one of the key artists of optical and kinetic art. As a color theorist, his artistic research led him on to a new cognitive approach of color phenomena, one that considerably amplified his entire field of perception. His artworks pertain to the four following chromatic situations: subtractive, inductive, additive, and reflective. His work is largely structured around eight investigations: Additive colors, Physichromia, Chromosaturation, Chromoscopia, and Space Coloration. Carlos Cruz-Diez also creates numerous installations in urban space and architecture.
Véronique de Lavenne organized the exhibition, “Carlos Cruz-Diez: Color Transfiguration” at Marlborough Gallery in Monaco in spring 2015.
