Seurat to Riley: The Art of Perception
Compton Verney Art Gallery
8 July – 1 October 2017
Compton Verney’s summer exhibition will take you on a fascinating and stimulating journey that looks at the ways in which our visual perceptions have been explored by artists. From the Impressionists onwards, artists have been inspired by historical and contemporary colour theories -most markedly seen in the pointillist work of Georges Seurat and his associates, where colours other than those actually painted on the canvas are generated in the eye of the beholder. During the 20th century, the scientific and philosophical interest in perception extended into ways of communicating movement via static art forms. Artists such as Helen Saunders, M.C. Escher, Josef Albers and Victor Vasarely variously used tessellation – patterns created by using identical shapes – mathematics, and often colour, to convey the sensation of movement.
The ‘Op Art’ movement from the 1950’s to the 1970’s made stars of Bridget Riley, Carlos Cruz Diez, Jesus Rafael Soto and Julio Le Parc, Peter Sedgley, whose work will be on show in Compton Verney, as will that of their successors, Christiane Baumgartner, Liliane Lijn, Rodney Graham, Daniel Buren, Sara Moorhouse, Luthar Götz, Liz West and Jim Lambie.
