Considered a major force in the American Op Art movement and geometric abstraction, Richard Anuszkiewicz is concerned with the optical changes that occur when different high-intensity colors are applied to the same geometric configurations. Most of his work is comprised of linear and structural color interactions, many of them nested square forms similar to the work of his mentor, Josef Albers.

With an illustrious career spanning decades, Anuszkiewicz has continued to produce paintings in the Op Art style. His works can be found in the most prestigious museum collections throughout the world, including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY; the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA; and the Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, CT, to name a few.
