OPPLER features artworks that visually move and shift beneath one’s gaze, triggering relational reactions, synesthetic responses, and wobbly eyes. The artists included have created works that straddle unmapped and unmappable spaces, where objects move and shift, triggering simultaneous contradictory sensory readings.

OPPLER includes works that tangentially relate to Op Art, Minimalism, Kinetic Art, Concrete Art and Color Field Painting, though none of these historic movements is fully representative of the work shown. The subject of the work is the work itself; what you see is what it is.

OPPLER includes site-specific installation, two-dimensional painting and low relief three-dimensional wall sculpture. While the three-dimensional works may appear flat, many of the two-dimensional works leap off the wall and into the eyes.

Foton XVIII, 2012

Lynne Harlow creates work with as little intervention as possible, enabling the materials inherent qualities, such as light and transparency, to play an essential role. Henriëtte van ’t Hoog’s three-dimensional objects play with your sense of perspective enhanced by the glowing colors hidden on the backs of each piece. Mary Schiliro’s luminous painted Mylars with circular cut-outs dialogue with their own rhythmic shadow play. Juxtaposing washy backgrounds with solid painted blocks of color, Douglas Witmer’s surfaces quietly resonate – color and light.

Doppler is an international traveling exhibition organized by Mel Prest. The exhibition features works by twenty two artists living in the US and Europe. The exhibition title refers to the Doppler Effect as well as synesthesia. The intent of the exhibition is to visually question or crush the illusion of difference between 2D and 3D. The artists chosen have created work that optically straddles this un-locatable perceptual space where static objects move and shift or trigger simultaneous sense-readings.
