The works of Maurits Cornelis Escher is a subliminal interactive experience where wonder collides with brilliance of a multi dimensional world suddenly within our view – and belief. Within moments, various images magically morph within overlooked black and white spaces as if slowly developing upon photographic paper.
Within this exhibit of more than 150 works, you will see an image reflection of the artist peering into a crystal ball – with incredible detail. On a nearby wall, a metamorphosis of astonishing precision fits neatly into several yards of time and spaces of undiscovered evolutionary opportunity in plain black and white sight. Each image is a delight of design that challenges perception to experience a new dimension that bends and morphs the continuum of every day life.
Escher’s genius extends into perceptions and dimensions as images of staircases defy gravity to reach into long disregarded space and direction. Despite its presentation upon a flat surface, his work shows us how narrow our view of life is and liberates the confines of our reality and into an area beyond reach Isaac Newton’s laws of gravity.
Parts science, mathematician, graphic design, and visionary, Escher continues to evoke amazement in a world inundated with endless CGI, graphics, and computer wizardry. The depth and intensity of his work cuttings, lithographs, and drawings not only transcend daily life, they continue to transport us well beyond it.
