OP ART (13th-24th APRIL)

13 04 2020

 Dear Students

How are you doing? I hope you are ok! :)

These two next weeks we are working with the OP ART! We are going to learn how to create different grids and shapes.

SOME HISTORY:

Op-art, also known as optical art, is used to describe some paintings and other works of art which use optical illusions.

Op art works are abstract, with many of the better known pieces made in only black and white. When the viewer looks at them, the impression is given of movement, hidden images, flashing and vibration, patterns, or alternatively, of swelling or warping.

A true Op Art piece “teases” the eye. Straight lines may appear curved, lines wriggle, flat areas undulate. The eye is tricked into seeing things which are not so. Areas may appear to be flattened or stretched. The eye may often be unable to focus when viewing an Op Art piece.

In the mid-20th century, artists such as Victor Vasarely, Bridget Riley and M.C. Escher experimented with Optical Art. Escher’s work, although not abstract, deals extensively with various forms of visual tricks and paradoxes.

SKETCHING:

Experiment with perspective; use grids, shapes, and lines to create patterns and illusions.

  • Your piece should be designed in black & white on a graph paper. Each square mesures aproximadamente 10×10 cms. Use a black felt tip pen.
  • Sketch at least 4 different ideas. You have to copy four of the grids you have got. There are 8 of them. Choose only four. If you have a hard time starting the sketches - you can follow the steps.
