Mon Levinson (American, 1926-2014), "The Wedged Circle", 1967, Plexiglas, paper, and ink, signed

Product Description:

"Fade In, Fade Out – The Wedged Circle" is a 1967 work by Mon Levinson that draws its strength from interaction with the viewer. The square paper is diagonally bisected into four equivalent areas of a different colored inks – red, yellow, blue and green. Levinson, who is known for creating works that merge sculpture and painting, then houses the drawing in a Plexiglas box, with small vertical lines screenprinted on the inside of the front. The effect of the screenprinted Plexiglas activates the ink drawing underneath, moving and resembling works of kinetic art. The areas of color grow stronger or weaker depending on the viewer's angle, making the viewer's perception a key element in Levinson's process. A small Plexiglas ring lies inside between the Plexi cover and the colored sheet of paper, adding another variable to the viewer's perception.
