This book celebrates the work of Vasa, the innovative sculptor whose work explores the three dimensional interactions of light and color. In 1967 he expected to explore clear plastic for a few years but to his surprise he continues to discover new possibilities. This book is a must for any Vasa collector.
With an advanced understanding of optical complexities, Vasa has become, in the words of Henry Seldis, former art critic of The Los Angeles Times, "the most sensuous and sensational colorist of the southern California artists working in plastic." The book emphasizes the influence of Los Angeles on Vasa’s work from the 1960s to present. It includes a recent note by William Wilson, former Los Angeles Times art critic, reflecting upon Vasa's work and features reprints from newspaper art reviews, catalogues, and art magazines, as well as stills and transcripts from an interview with Vasa in the BBC show "Reyner Banham Loves Los Angeles." Vasa is a senior Professor of Design at the University of California, Los Angeles.
