Julio Le Parc Presents His Chromatic Studies at Andréhn-Schiptjenko Gallery

One of his first showings in Scandinavia.

Accessibility is at the core of Julio Le Parc’s practice. No symbolism or prior knowledge necessary — just an active participation from his audience. Born in Argentina and based in Paris, the 93-year-old working artist experiments across geometric abstraction and optokinetic forms — creating static, yet dynamic compositions that thinker with color, light and shadow.

Andréhn-Schiptjenko gallery in Stockholm is exhibiting a selection of 13 paintings created by the Op Art pioneer. Each of the artworks radiate with a chromatic intensity that Le Parc first explored in 1959. “When working with color, the idea was not at all to do a blue or a “warm” painting, for instance,” said the artist in a statement. “From the start, I decided to not just use a few colors, but all of them. I wanted them to be pure and not cut with black or white. I did not let myself use any other colors than the fourteen ones I had originally chosen […] All of this research undertaken many years ago now, has been revisited, organized and broadened to give it an increasingly better and more legible form.”

The eponymously titled exhibition is one of Le Parc’s first showings in Scandinavia and will be on view at Andréhn-Schiptjenko in Stockholm until October 1.

Elsewhere, Pop artist Marisol gets renewed focus in new exhibition at Pérez Art Museum.
