The exhibition is comprised of works from his ‘Polytypes’ series.  Given that most of the works come from private collections it was no mean feat to collect together the works for the exhibition.

The Polytypes series was started in the 1960s and was a series that Biasi revisited in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s.  With each visit, the series changed an became increasingly articulated, but the essential characteristic remains which is the creation of the perception of movement created by the subtle movements of the observer.
