Fabulous vintage c.1980’s original acrylic on canvas painting by the well listed artist, Josef Kugler! It depicts an array of floating spheres and geometric objects in an almost dreamlike state over the seascape. One could certainly see them as planets as well, set among a starry evening sky.
Josef Kugler (Austrian/American) is a fine painter from a family of well regarded artists. His paintings run the gamut of subject matter, but this piece offered here comes from his era that would be classified in the category of Abstract Illusionism. The notable characteristic of this genre is that objects appear three dimensional through the use of cast shadows and perspective. Illusionism straddles the defintions of realism and abstraction. In effect, abstract forms become “real” due to their manipulation by the artist. These paintings are extraordinary when viewed with a changing light source.
This painting measures 36″ tall by 48″ in width, and is presented as found, as a studio wrapped canvas, unframed.
It is in very good condition as shown, with no damage to note. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from the artist himself.
