Gerhard von Graevenitz (1934-1983)
Serigraph: black and silver ink on thick paper
Signed, numbered and dated on the back
Excellent archived condition
Von Graevenitz was an important respresentative of kinetic art, op art, and computer art. Chance and order had been his subject since the 1950's when he was part of the Zero group. To avoid subjective, artistic decisions he would use dice to determine the outcome of his work. In this serigraph a computer was used in a similar waay. A straight grid was deformed. The corner points displaced by chance. For example two places up, three down. Resulting in an unpredictable, but evenly spread, non-hierarchical pattern. This large serigraph is rare and hard to find. It is in an excellent archived condition. No color fading and no dents.
