, is honored to have Mr. Slutsky’s optical illusion solo art exhibition featuring over twenty five pieces of his art work adorn our walls. “The Shape of Things” exhibition commences with the opening reception Sunday, February 10, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm and runs through Friday, April 19, 2013. “When I was a child,” says Slutsky of Boynton Beach, FL, “there was something about the illusions magicians created that captured my imagination. I want that same vivid sense of illusions to be central in my artwork. Today, all of my work creates the illusion of movement and three – dimensionality. I achieve these effects by juxtaposing hard-edged color patterns that disrupt the normal process of vision. Some shapes of color may seem to advance and then recede and others appear to pulsate in waves.“ Slutsky’s artworks are created with astounding geometric precision and vibrant colors that make him stand apart. Slutsky’s art work is in many fine art galleries, he has exhibited in numerous community venues in Florida, including Art in Public Places and Museums and permanent Collections throughout the United States. “My art is a passion of painstaking, semi- scientific approach to painting based on the manipulation of optical devices, and which depends on subtle color gradations, systematic chromatic harmonic lines and shapes,” continues Slutsky. “I hope my work will stimulate and provoke a positive emotional response in the viewer’s mind just like the magicians did when I was a child.” The Weisman Delray Community Center is located at 7091 West Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach and is open to the public at no charge.
