VASA MIHICH "VERRE COUPLE", 1979
Caviar20 is excited to be offering this exquisite example of Vasa Mihich sculpture. This is one of the earliest pieces we have handled.
We wonder whether during this era Vasa was interested in the trompe d'oeil effects that could be created with acrylic. On first glance the sculptures seem to be made of glass, as the material at this thickness appears to have a specific blue-green hue. Initially the two pieces present themselves as monochromatic, however on closer inspection it is revealed that there are clear elements as well as canary yellow and clover green planes of color suspended in the forms.
Like the best of his work, as one moves around the piece, different regions of color present themselves, overlap with another or disappear.
While this is an important an early sculpture, it has been recently repolished by the artist.
