painting of a woman enjoying painting by Victor Vasarely
acrylic on panel (masonite)
7" x 6" or 17 x 15 cm
The woman on my painting is enjoying a painting by Victor Vasarely. He was a French-Hungarian artist credited as the father of the Op Art movement, short for Optical Art. Utilizing geometric shapes and colorful graphics, the artist created compelling illusions of spatial depth, as seen in this work my figure is enjoying in a museum.
Painting Op Art is a pretty weird experience. The checker board kept on dancing before my eyes and I had to take regular breaks and rub my eyes for a minute. They don't call it Op Art for nothing!
I create small studies like Central Point in preparation for a finished piece or just as visual notes. I often use my small studies to understand the problems involved in rendering subjects and to plan the elements to be used in finished works, such as light, color, form, perspective and composition.
These small studies are exclusively available through my shop and blog. All studies are signed on the reverse.
