Description

Stanczak uses repeating forms to create compositions that are manifestations of his visual expereinces. Stanczak's work is an art of experience, and is based upon structure of color. In the 1980s and 1990s Stanczak retained his geometric structure and created compositions with bright or muted colors. More recently, Stanczak has been creating large-scale series, consisting of square panels on which he examines variations of hue and chroma in illusionist color modulations, an example of which is Parade of Reds, 2008. The painting is comprised of 50 16" squares of shades of red color displaying Stanczak's characteristic obsessive lines creating a striking visual pattern.
