Op Art


Art Fortune | Op Art

 

Op Art, or Optical Art is a style in art that manipulates optical illusions through the interactive patterns of (most frequently) black and white color. Almost all of these works are abstract and create the illusion of movement, vibrations, patterns, warping, or flashing. Op Art was developed in the early 1960’s and was cultivated in Chicago by past instructors of the Bauhaus in Germany. Josef Albers was among the color enthusiasts who explored the limitations and capabilities of the eye through color and form. Others involved with Op Art were Richard Anuszkiewicz, who combined geometric shape with color, Bridget Riley, one of the first to use black and white patterns to create the effect of seasickness, and Jesus Soto, who used sculpture to create the same effects with color.


"In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is - as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium in art."

- Josef Albers
