Julie Oppermann’s work pushes the limits of visual perception. Scintillating effects arise through stacked layers of offset line patterns through which contrasting colors are juxtaposed, eliciting fluttering afterimages, optical flicker, disorienting spatial effects, and destabilizing sensations of movement.
In anticipation of her upcoming solo show at Mark Moore Gallery – which opens the following Thursday, February 19th, 7-9pm – this artist talk will include details pertaining to her new body of work, “Counterpoint,” as well as her studio technique and process. Admission to the artist talk is free and open to the public.
