Soto: Vibrations 1950-1960
(1000 items available)
Renowned as a founder of kinetic art, Soto explored the disintegration of the art object, breaking new ground while anticipating conceptual strategies to come. This is the first publication to focus on the critical first decade of the Venezuelan artist's life in Paris, following Soto's career from his earliest Mondrian-inspired paintings restricted to pure yellows, reds, blues and greens to his plexiglass paintings that draw on the experiments of Duchamp and Moholy-Nagy.Imbued with vibration and movement, Soto's early works constitute a breakthrough in his output, laying crucial groundwork for his later kinetic works and the fluid style that shaped his artistic vocabulary.
