An illusion is anything that is wrongly perceived by our eyes or ears on being induced by the mind. An optical illusion is one when the most sensitive of
all our organs- eyes confuse between the very fine and vague line of make- believe and real. Paintings with Optical illusions are broadly categorized under Op Art, an abbreviation for optical art. This category is an amazing section for abstract creation of paintings that give out experiences of definitive movement in the stand- by picture. The illusions can be placed either with the play of monochromatic theme or even the whole use of the color genre.
The whole process is brought about in one function illusion very smoothly, as the work is mostly based on the perception which our eye receives, it is the visualisation potency that brings about the contradictory relationship putting our eyesights in pleasurable collocation.
Use of light comes first in importance followed by color play. Among the many firsts was the much-debated painting of Bridget Riley which was termed as Movement in Squares published in 1961. Abstract reality became famous in the modern era, as this is when people wanted and needed to mix fiction with reality.
