M.C. Escher

June 16, 2018 - November 4, 2018

Dutch artist M. C. Escher (1898–1972) is known for his striking prints that often defy the realm of possibility: stairways that never end, interlocking animals that appear as both figure and background, images that seem both flat and volumetric at once. But you might be surprised to learn that Escher was motivated by a deep sense of wonder at the natural laws of the world around him. Through the artist’s playful and disorienting imagery, M. C. Escher: Perception and Deception explores how often our own senses can deceive us.
