Biography:

Closely associated with the Zero Group in Düsseldorf, Walter LeBlanc is best known for his Kinetic and Op Art pieces that incorporate light and other non-traditional materials. In 1959, investigating strategies for painting without pigment, LeBlanc introduced torsion to his work—he tightened and twisted cotton threads, and eventually plastic ribbons, over traditional supports to create ray-like patterns and simple geometric shapes. LeBlanc was primarily interested in motion, both the illusion of movement produced by Op Art and the physical movement of Kinetic Art.
