The trippy Irene Alvarez ‘Turn Me Op’ art show features brightly-hued pieces that are eye-catching and bold. The project is the artist’s latest collaboration with the Audax Textielmuseum Tilburg. These dizzying depictions take inspiration from a wide variety of pop culture iconography that includes classic Disney characters, ethnic idols as well as psychedelic collages. These innovative tapestries take risks and dare to stand apart from the crowd.

Artist Irene Alvares fuses her sculpture background with textile design, making for a final collection enriched with texture. These woven illustrations take inspiration from Op Art and Pop Art genres, experimenting with materials, transparencies and visual techniques.

The Irene Alvarez Turn me Op tapestry series aims to change human perception with a striking optical illusion effect that draws the viewer in.
