Generated Thick Descriptor (via Chat-GPT 4): Op Art (optical art) is an abstract art style that employs optical illusions. Its main visual qualities involve creating the illusion of movement, hidden images, flashing and vibrating patterns, or a sense of swelling or warping. These artworks are often made in black and white for high contrast but can incorporate color, and emphasize pattern and line work. To create an op art piece, one must create distinct, often repeating, patterns or line constructions that contradict or play on figure-ground relations to trick the viewer’s eyes into seeing movement or distorted perspective.
