M.C. Escher — or Maurits Cornelis Escher, is a Dutch graphic artist who is most renowned for his intricate impossible geometry drawings. Deriving inspiration from mathematical objects, the works are illusory and highly interesting. Japanese design studio Nendo pays homeage to the artist's exceptional portfolio through a specially curated exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria.
The show includes 157 impossible geometry drawings made by Escher between 1916 and 1969. Titled 'Between Two Worlds,' the exhibit is entirely monochromatic, allowing guests to survey the work and marvel at the immersive shapes without being distracted by color. To unify MC Escher's work, Nendo chooses an accessible thematic for its Melbourne exhibition debut — a house motif that "provides a context for display and [a] direction [for] visitors."
