POST-OP at MIXED GREENS27/07/2012
New York gallery Mixed Greens presents Post-Op, a group exhibition that explores the influence of Op Art within contemporary visual art practice. Grown out of geometric abstraction, trompe l’oeil, and the uncertainty and perceptual change of the mid-20th Century, Op Art was dismissed by many critics at the time, but the recognizable mid-60s movement has proven to be of current importance and ongoing influence. Post-Op brings together eight artists working in a variety of media, all of whom contemplate perception, form, function, and rationality to create works tied to the lineage of the Op movement. Through color, line, lighting, and animation, artists Rachel Beach, Peter Demos, Andrew Falkowski, Emilio Gomariz, Jay Shinn, Suzanne Song, Rebecca Ward, and Ken Weathersby explore visual illusion in exciting ways.
