An active participant in the Kinetic art movement in Paris in the 1960s, Argentinean artist Gregorio Vardánega began his artistic career as a member of the Arte Concreto- Invención movement in Buenos Aires in the 1940s. Like his early paintings, his Kinetic work exhibits an interest in musical refrains and demonstrates his continued exploration of color compositions. Graphisme d’Ombres Bleu [Blue Shadow Graphics] employs a sequence of lighting configurations that creates ever-changing and surprising patterns. Blue translucent panels are supported by thin rods—their cast shadows act as dynamic drawings. The result is a visually arresting work that showcases the height of Vardanega’s talent and utopian idealism in postwar Paris.
