M. C. Escher
The Dutch graphic artist was born on 06.17.1898 in the Frisian Leeuwarden. For him the graphical techniques such as woodcut and media lithography is an illusionist world.
The playful confusion of the senses of the viewer are the main objective of Escher's art. However, the absurdity of the arrangement is often evident at a very close look. So one discovers that he turns inside out and turned hell to darkness.
He united animals of contradictory elements in his paintings so, that the floating fish into a metamorphosis of the flying birds. Corridors, floors and staircases appear in an architectural constructions, which reveal their structural impossibility after the second look. The people appear as in a maze and in ways seems to be wrong up and down.
In his distinctive and touching way, he transform our thinking , our small certainties and our conventions for the whole world with its imagery, in question mark and thus give us back a piece of liveliness.
The masters of Illusion died on 27.3.1972 in Hilversum South of Amsterdam.
