9780262570817: Forms of Color: The Interaction of Visual Elements

Swiss artist and designer, Karl Gerstner draws on artistic literary, and scientific sources, as well as on his own studio work to investigate the basic visual elements of color and form. Inspired by Wassily Kandinsky, Gerstner explores the ideas of continuous and evenly measured changes in the three dimensions of color - hue, tone, and saturation.

Review:



"Gerstner has found a system of simple and symmetrical geometric shapes that can be continuously transformed from one to another so that each colour can be given its own distinct shape ... Some of his resulting artwork can be seen via the exceptionally good reproductions in [the] book, which I recommend to any artists engaged in thinking systematically about colour. Karl Gerstner is above all, a visual combinator. Rather than pursuing solutions to specific problems, he is seeking a general program valid for many solutions: a systematic approach for analyzing in design terms the conceptual and emotional aspects of form and color."
Emilio Ambasz
