The “Knots” series are among the last paintings that Richard Anuszkiewicz (1930-2020) worked on in his studio at the time of his death. This group of five, presented here for the first time, are perfect examples of illusionism-shattering flatness. As John Dorfman points out in the forthcoming catalogue, the third dimension is present, but in an ambiguous, even paradoxical way. The squares and rectangles are made up of strips that overlap, going over and under each other. Colors seem to oscillate back and forth, each seeming to be in front for a moment and then recede to allow the other to come forward.
