Roland Schimmel

"Over the last two decades, Dutch artist Roland Schimmel has produced a compelling oeuvre of abstract paintings to which digital animations have been added more recently (these films are “illustrated” by music of composer David Lopato). What the works have in common is the exploration of sensorial frontiers. the paintings and animations depict optical structures or fields, in which the soft contours of shimmering haloes and hard edges of black holes pop up and meet. Observing the encounter of these contrasting forms evokes physical sensations of expansion and contraction reminiscent of op art’s push and pull effects." - Minus Space. See more;
