Visual Perception

About

Artworks that examine the subjectivity of the human visual process and its effect on art practice. Perception, as a general term, is arguably a central concern of all art practice, but particular artists stemming from and since the Renaissance have demonstrated a specific interest in it. Leonardo da Vinci, for example, obsessively studied the structure of the eye and the disparities between monocular and binocular vision, interrogating the ways in which artists depict three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface. Contemporary artists continue to engage with the processes of human vision, investigating subjects such as depth perception, optical illusions and instruments, and vision dysfunction.
