LewAllen Galleries Scottsdale is pleased to present Ed Mieczkowski: Visual Paradox and Perceptual Art, a solo exhibition of paintings, sculpture and works on paper from more than 45 years of the career of artist Ed Mieczkowski who was an early pioneer of the Op Art movement and is a noted hard-edge geometric abstractionist.
Mieczkowski’s work appeared in the 1964 Time magazine article that first introduced the term Op Art to the public. His work was also included in The Responsive Eye exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1965 which was the first major museum exhibition of perceptual art. For more than 60 years, Mieczkowski has created striking examples of optically engaging and geometrically elegant paintings, constructions, sculpture and drawings, taking complex relationships between points, planes, lines and angles and making stunningly dramatic art forms from them.
The artist will travel to LewAllen Galleries Scottsdale from his home in Los Angeles for the exhibition and will be present during the reception on October 3, 2013 from 7-9pm.
