Stanczak, Julian

Presented by David Richard Gallery

Julian Stanczak is best known for his illusory “see-through” abstractions and “grid” paintings, which have been at the core of his art-making practice for the past five decades. His various methods for producing optical effects on canvas, including his use of color—contrasting, physical mixing or varying proportions of just one color—in combination with other techniques, such overlapping planar shapes or lines in compositions; defining shapes with hard or diffuse edges; adding vertical or horizontal lines to activate the surfaces; and layering dots, dashes and triangles in contrasting colors on the surfaces to produce vibrational effects. But more than creating optical effects, his art making practice is about color and the sensations and emotions that color can evoke, which are personal and unique to each viewer.
