LIMITED EDITION ARTIST TRIBUTE SWEATERS
hand loomed and hand finished in pure wool
The Vasarely Rules sweaters were designed for the Deeply Superficial exhibition in 2015, and are based on some of the methods Vasarely used to trick the eye. The names of the designs are not Vasarely’s – they are simply an attempt to capture the visual effect of the design.
Victor Vasarely (9 April 1906 – 15 March 1997)
Hungarian visual artist who concentrated on optical effects – ‘the art of spontaneous experience’ – in order to integrate art into everyday life. Vasarely’s work not only challenges our perceptions but alerts us to the complexity of what we already experience in the world around us. His work is characterised by setting up a conflict between two contradictory perceptions, forcing the eyes into a continual but vain attempt to settle on one, or make a clear distinction between them.
This hand loomed sweater in pure wool features a design based on one of Vasarely’s. Although composed only of straight lines, it tricks the eye into seeing 4 concentric circles.
