M. C. Escher was fascinated with the dynamic tension between figure and ground in tessellations and explored this in 'Sky and water I'. He turns figure into ground in this transformation of a bird into a fish. As Escher explained, ‘Above, the white fish silhouettes merge to form the “sky” for the birds, while in the lower half the black birds blend together to form “water” for the fishes’. #Escher #NGV #NGVEXN extended hours till 7pm | until 28 Jan | Book online • • • Image: M.

Tu non smettere mai d'essere poesia, anche in un mondo di frasi fatte e ritornelli stonati. Anche quando nessuno vorrà leggerti, tu non smettere di essere poesia. E troverai prima o poi chi nei tuoi versi si perderà tanto da non trovarsi più. #escher

I did this Escher themed tattoo yesterday. It’s matching the shape of the existing tattoo on the other arm, but filled in with the floor from Twin Peaks and Relativity by Escher. Hope you like it. . . . #eschertattoo #escher #escherrelativity #relativity #lineworktattoo #geometrictattoo #twinpeakstattoo #twinpeaks #opticalillusiontattoo #opticalillusion #tattoos #tatuagem #tatuaje #tatoo #blackwork #tattooed #tattooartist

Sending out some happy mail to the USA! I stamped the adres and name with letter stamps and decorated the enveloppe with Dutch things, like Miffy ('Nijntje'), tulips and AH paper. 🇳🇱 Inside is an Escher postcard. 📮 #happymail #instamail #mail #happybirthday #card #escher #family #friend #PostNL #echtepostiszoveelleuker #post #stamps #letter #letterstamps #stationary #washitape #snailmail #prettymail #USA #send #youvegotmail #priority #postzegel #miffy #Nijntje #dickbruna #tulpen #tulips

#escher #zygmuntbauman #vincolodamore "Quando si evita a ogni costo di ritrovarsi soli, si rinuncia all’opportunità di provare la solitudine: quel sublime stato in cui è possibile raccogliere le proprie idee, meditare, riflettere, creare e, in ultima analisi, dare senso e sostanza alla comunicazione. Certo, chi non ne ha mai gustato il sapore non saprà mai ciò che ha perso, ha lasciato indietro, a cosa ha rinunciato." Zygmunt Bauman

A rare late wood engraving by M. C. Escher. The four-fold symmetry of this pine cone is similar to patterns found in other Escher prints, but nowhere does Escher hide nature’s symmetry more cleverly in plain sight than in this marvelous print! #symmetry #escher #pinecone #nature #engraving #printmaking

エッシャー展。 やっぱり行きたい!と思って 滑り込みで最終日に行ってきました☆ . 時間を忘れてぐるぐる見てしまう錯視の世界もさることながら、それ以前に、版画の技術の高さに驚き👀 . バカリズムの音声ガイダンスも良かった👍 . BGMのバッハの旋律が耳の奥に残ってる。。 . (風邪気味なのをおして行ったため、帰宅してから悪化した…😷🤧) . . #escher #エッシャー #エッシャー展 #あべのハルカス美術館 #バカリズム #サカナクション #バッハの旋律を夜に聴いたせいです

Hey everyone! Happy #wednesday!! Ok! So this is the piece that I've been working on for the last couple of weeks!! She's a beauty, ain't she!?! She's also pretty big too, finishing up at 90cm width and 1metre in height 😲 A real space filler I'd say... . Ok so I also wanted to share with you my inspiration for this creation. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I've loved and been intrigued by this #artist from my childhood! He is none other than M.C Escher #escher If you don't know his work, I strongly recommend that you check it out! Totally mind blowing... . In this piece I drew on Escher's complex interlocking designs and his use of multiple viewpoints/perspectives in order to create the illusion of movement... I will refer to a quote of his when getting ready to draw an object he said ' come off the paper and show me what you are capable of...' Well that's exactly how I feel about my #wallart !! I want it to come off the wall and be alive... . Thanks for reading all this... I hope some of you did! I pour my heart and soul into everything I make! Thanks again!

«Vedere due mondi diversi nello stesso identico luogo e nello stesso tempo ci fa sentire come se fossimo in balìa di un incantesimo. Solo un artista ci può dare questa illusione e suscitare in noi una sensazione eccezionale, un'esperienza dei sensi del tutto inedita.» [M.C. Escher] #escher #art #stelle #galaxy #stars #universe

I had only ever thought of Escher lumped in with the surrealists, with work that slightly terrified me as a youngster. Never understood the immense talent he lead with, in continually updating and mastering so many styles so easily. All curated into an excellent exhibition with spaces that showed how creative Nendo is showing his work. #ngvexn #ngv #escher #nendo #art #reductionprint

Never did I imagine I’d come away from the Escher x Nendo show with an absolute love for this talented mans work. I never knew of his incredible skill as a reduction print artist. So much to aspire towards. #ngvexn #ngv #art #reductionprint #nendo #escher

日曜日に行ったけど大行列で諦めて、でもどうしても諦めきれなくて最終日に行ってきたエッシャー展。 混雑する原因は摩訶不思議さと緻密さゆえ人がなかなか動かなかったためと知る。 頭の中どうなってるんやろ表現しないと疲れちゃうんやろなって作品たちで 教科書で見たあの絵やあの絵がいっぱい!お腹いっぱい満足して帰ってきた。 #エッシャー展 #だまし絵 #ミラクルエッシャー展 #escher #あべのハルカス美術館
