Kinetic artist Carlos Cruz-Diez (born 17.08.1923 in Caracas) broke new ground in color-optics during the Kinetic art movement of the 1960s. He has been rightly called "master of color" as he has made color the subject of his artistic discourse. His artworks capture and reflect the ephemeral and mobile nature of color mainly trough the use of lines.
“We have made colour a certainty over the centuries, but it isn’t. Colour is just a circumstance created instantaneously before our eyes.”
His work is represented in museums and public art sites internationally, such as Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York; Tate Modern, London; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; Centre Pompidou, París; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Wallraf-Richartz Museum, Colonia, and others.
