I’m really drawn to these sculptures by the artist Vasa Mihich. I saw what looked like a few of these grouped together at the amazing 1stDibs showroom the other night at the Blogfest closing party.
A little bit about Vasa:
“A senior Professor of Design at the University of California, Los Angeles, Vasa is an innovative, internationally known sculptor whose creative work explores the three dimensional interactions of light and color. With an advanced understanding of optical complexities, Vasa has become, in the words of Henry Seldis, former art critic of The Los Angeles Times, “the most sensuous and sensational colorist of the southern California artists working in plastic.”
In the 1960s, Vasa developed techniques for working with cast laminated acrylic forms, based on simple Euclidean shapes. These prisms of luminous construction are created by composing colored planes within these geometric forms. Each is signed and dated by the artist. Due to the nature of this process, colors are unique to each piece and may vary from the photo.”
They are not un-affordable…. and I think I need one. Like I said earlier, I want to declutter my house by adding simpler and stronger pieces instead of a collection of weaker ones. Thoughts? I think this means I will have to be avoiding the new Manhattan Home Goods opening tomorrow… it’s usually the place I buy things I eventually want to throw out.
