"This is worth it" OP ART trick of the eye

2017

About

Multi-colour, op art. Three artworks in one painting, where the artworks changes when you walk from left to right. One side are linear forms; the other is multi-colour geometrics. Antonio Marra’s 3D paintings are simultaneously familiar and revolutionary. Although nostalgic of Frank Stella’s vibrantly coloured geometric works, Marra further enhances the experience of abstraction by injecting a shock of the unexpected. Using precise mathematical calculations, Marra introduces sculptural features that elevate his paintings. His masterful craftsmanship is evident in the thick, precisely painted grooves formed entirely by the artist’s own hand. Walking alongside the work allows the dynamic energy of the optical illusion to manifest. The observer has to move from one side of the painting to the other, otherwise they’re only seeing a fraction of Marra’s artistry. The exhibition is a kaleidoscopic experience; Marra affects the audience’s perception of depth by manipulating colour, shape, and form. His works are provocative as they present a challenge, awakening curiosity and inspiring interaction. His lenticulars demonstrate conflict, briefly offering a moment of rigidity and certainty through distinct geometric patterns that are then disrupted, undergoing a metamorphosis that can only be initiated by the spectator.
