"Ascending Shapes" by Pedro Friedeberg, Oil on Wood Painting


Mexican artist Pedro Friedeberg combines Op Art with symbolism in this geometric abstract painting. Born in Italy to German-Jewish parents, Frideberg emigrated to Italy at 3 and studied as an artist at teh Universidad Iberoamericana. Influenced by the architectural work of Mathias Goertiz, Friedeberg applied geometric precision to his surrealist style, resulting in mesmerizing compositions that lead him to join the Dadaist group Los Hartos. "Ascending Shapes" is indicative of his post-1960 works, where he combined design and symbolism into complex pieces of furniture, Painted on wood, various symbols of world religions and the occult are set against similar shapes, as if the symbols are deconstructing and evolving with each step on the ascending, geometric background This oil on wood panel painting is signed on the lower right, and if offered unframed.
