The work of Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez is committed to the Op Art and Kinetic Art movements. Kinetic Art is based on optical movement and the way in which the viewer is affected by the elemental qualities of colour and form. Cruz-Diez's works, such as this fine painting, are geometric and use strong colours to help create a visual experience and emotional reaction in the viewer without the use of representational imagery. The artist is deeply focused on perception, and centered a series entitled Induction Chromatique around the idea of retinal presistence. Retinal persistence is the phenomenon of the afterimage - when an image still appears even after looking away. Inducción Cromática Serie B 3/4 is from this series, and the strong colour palette and composition carry the viewer's eye from corner to corner on the surface. This work is an excellent example of both retinal persistence and the linear compositions that Cruz-Diez has become internationally renowned for.
