Press R E L E A S E For IMMEDIATE RELEASE New book defines and classifies optical illusions Contact: Book Author gary@rohrabaugh.com (360) 676-0999 gary.rohrabaugh.com Summary: What's New: New book challenges art world declaring six categories of Optical Illusions that defines the use of optical illusions by artists Who Cares: Art Lovers, Art Historians, Artists, Engineers, Architects Where: http://www.rohrabaugh.com/gary/ Defined and Categorized Illusions New book challenges the reader and the art world to better see and understand the role of optical illusions in art. BELLINGHAM, Wash. - February 12, 2012 - Successfully converting what we see into flat, static images requires the use of illusionary tools like perspective, scale, and vanishing point. These tools are employed in varying degrees of success by artists, engineers, and mathematicians to depict our three dimensional in-motion world. The optical illusion paintings, represented in this document, attempt to reduce these tools to their simplest forms. When successful this gives the viewer a pure representation of the illusion. This success of this work can be measured in the knowledge gained by defining and understanding optical illusions. Applying this knowledge should make it easier to appreciate great art and the artists use of optical illusions. WHY THE NAME Exploring Illusions? - “Drawings and Paintings are all Optical Illusions. That said some applies illusions work better than others, like in Leonardo da Vinci’s drawings and paintings. Does the understanding of the basic tools used to make optical illusions help the artist and the art viewer get more out of the flat surface image. That is the challenge presented in this book. If nothing else I hope the reader enjoys the painted illusions.” - Gary Rohrabaugh
