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.
