After losing the use of his right arm in a Siberian labor camp during World War II, Julian Stanczak fled to a Polish refugee camp in Uganda where he learned how to paint and write left-handed.
For more than a half century, Stanczak maintained a distinguished career as an abstract painter interested in perceptual phenomena. Filtered Yellow features hundreds of alternating red and green razor-sharp vertical bands, further energized by a yellow plane that folds back upon itself in complex mirror symmetry along a diagonal axis. As typical of his work, it emphasizes a high level of technical mastery rivaled by few.
