Product Overview

--Nearly 200 color plates beautifully combine with informative essays to spotlight the cleverness and ingenuity of this phase of Fletcher Benton''s work This striking volume starts at the beginning, when Benton first received international attention in his career as a kinetic artist bringing motion to his pieces with battery-powered motors. Joining the kinetic art movement that had developed in the early part of the twentieth century, with Alexander Calder''s mobiles and the work of Jean Tinguely, Benton became known as its colorist. For 30 years Benton would set circles, triangles, and parallelograms of solid colors in motion producing kaleidoscopic effects with his moving sculptures. As author Diane Ghirardo points out in her essay, Benton''s works fusing color, form, and time, implying change in a compelling resolution that appears deceptively simple . he has achieved a truly sophisticated development of time and color change studies.
