VASA MIHICH "RAINBOW PARALLELOGRAM", 2001
Vasa Mihich is a renowned Los Angeles based artist known for his sleek, colorful and captivating acrylic sculptures. He was a Senior Professor of Design at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) where he taught color theory.
For nearly 50 years he has been working in acrylics, either on canvas or through sculpture. His best sculptures are composed of geometric planes of different colors suspended in acrylic.
Like the best examples of Mihich's work, with each turn or new position the "Rainbow Parallelogram" is placed in, different colors, patterns, and perspectives emerge, overlap, or recede.
This prismatic parallelogram sculpture is an excellent example of his practice in both color arrangement and shape. Tiers of alternating candy colors stack on top of each other, appearing as slim slices from straight on, but taking on greater size and clarity when viewed from above or below. When seen from the side, the colors merge becoming active, recalling the best Op Art painting arrangements.
This work is ideally sized and has major presence standing, whether on a plinth, desk or mantle, and equally fascinating on one its sides.
