Inspiration for Exploring Illusions
Drawings and paintings are all optical illusions.
Successfully converting what we see into flat, static images requires the use of illusionary tools like perspective, scale, and vanishing point. These tools are employed in varying degrees of success by artists, engineers, and mathematicians to depict our three dimensional in-motion world.
My hope is that I have opened a new thread into the use of optical illusions in art through the sketches, paintings, and books that have resulted from this research.
