  • Description: Physichromie No. 965, and other works from that period, use the reflective nature of metal strips to produce colors in addition to those physically silkscreened onto the support of the work, resulting in what Cruz-Diez has called “a continuous evolutionary event involving chromatic atmospheres.” He used red, yellow, blue, white, and black on the support, but as the viewer alters position in relation to the work, the colors visible on the surface change and create an awareness of the concomitant passage of light and time. -Text by Mark Andrew White
