This is excellent!

Nice pic, too, Tom.
Tom Wilson: It certainly pulled the eye in the gallery!
Wow - that almost hurts my eyes!
Tom Wilson: Optical illusion stuff! smile

I like the idea we have no idea of what is in or out here Tom
Tom Wilson: It does keep you guessing, doesn't it? smile
If you stare at it long enough you can see a cat
Tom Wilson: Mmm - what kind of weed are you smoking these days, Bill? ;-)
Of the Bridget Riley ilk Tom. I wonder who influenced who?
Tom Wilson: Well Riley's op-art predates this one by three or four years, but Grignani (mainly known as a designer, it seems) was older and earlier into the genre - he is probably best known for the Woolmark symbol - http://giam.typepad.com/100_years_of_illustration/2012/02/franco-grignani-1908-1999.html
That is really fascinating Tom!
Tom Wilson: Certainly draws the eye, doesn't it?
mesmerising
Tom Wilson: It is, isn't it? smile

Where do I begin, Tom?
Tom Wilson: Just look, Lisl smile
Awesome piece of the old op art.
Tom Wilson: Yes - I liked it - as I said to Chad - he's best known as the designer of the Woolmark logo

Reminds me of the craze for pin and string craft pieces that were the rage in the 1970s. I still have one on display sad
Tom Wilson: Perhaps it is time to bring them back, Alan smile
