Viktor Vasarely, equally involved in paiting and printmaking, exploited optical effects in works that gave rise to the term Op Art. Vasarely simulated a visual sense of movement in his compositions by contrasting elements of color and form. The dynamics produced by these contrasts are based on the kinetics of perception; the image keeps the eyes alert, pulling it this way and that between the contrasts. Opposites produce the maximum of contrast, and in this silkscreen Vasarely incorperates the opposing colors of black and white as well as the opposing forms of mirror imagery.
