“Symphony XXI: Black” by Yaacov Agam

Yaacov Agam has several “Symphony” works on different backgrounds. In “Symphony XXI: Black” he depicts multicolored bright vertical lines, that pass into one another. Although painted in 1992, the painting, probably, refered to the coming unpredictable century. Black is a main color, it creates the sense of depth. As black fills all the space, the artwork can be regarded as a fight of bright emotional tints with the absorbing background. The work is a maze of spots and lines, that quickly capture the attention of spectators.
