Accelerateur Chromatique

Claude Tousignant, 1968

"Discussing Claude Tousignant’s 1968 painting Accelerateur Chromatique by way of example, Baerg notes that Tousignant used 'very precise mathematical calculations to create these hard-edged concentric bands of alternating colour, which were meant to generate a pulsating kind of experience. He talked about his paintings as being pure sensation.'"
