This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Eleanore Mikus is known for monochromatic kinesthetic moving surfaces on canvas, wood, and paper.  From 1960-1968, she did paintings called The Tablets and did Paper Folds from early 1960 to the present.  She continued to create paper folds into monochromatic kinesthetic moving surfaces and also paintings.  A period from late 1969 to 1981 was her Neo-Expressionist period.
