A Skewed View Rendered Squarely by Closer Proximity, 2017

Rose Frantzen (American, b. 1965)

Oil on linen

On loan from the artist.

 

When seen from a distance, the horizontal bands seem to slant up and down. As the viewer comes closer to the painting, the optical illusion is diminished, and it becomes perfectly horizontal lines.
