Suzanne Song, contemporary optical art

Suzanne Song's beautifully crafted take on Op Art additionally imbues the emphasis on illusion with one of painting's oldest devices: a representation of spatial depth enabled by precise attention to the rendering of light and shade.

Andrew Falkowski, Op art now

California-based US artist Andrew Falkowski's diverse practice is not exclusively Op-inflected.

However, it's true to say that much of his output references and reinvigorates perceptual painting, including a series based on 'dazzle ship' camouflage - echoing early 20th century canvases by British painter Edward Wadsworth which themselves provide an astonishing precursor to the Op Art aesthetic.

Peter Demos

Peter Demos, US contemporary art and Op Art now
