Rendezvous of Illusions

Patrick Hughes & Zhuang Hong Yi
With the Englishman Patrick Hughes and the Chinese Zhuang Hong Yi two international stars of the OP-Art scene shake hands. From 02.07.2022 to 23.10.2022 the kunsthalle messmer presents in its grandiose work show "Rendezvous of Illusions" works that move between optical illusions and kinetic finesse.

While Zhuang forms an oasis of calm in the exhibition and enchants with his iridescent color gradients and relief-like surfaces, Hughes' works fascinate with their mathematically constructed implementation of perspective and space. For the visitor, new worlds - both philosophical and optical - open up as you wander between Hughes' tilting and falling spatial planes and the almost meditative microcosm of Zhuang's abstracted floral structures.

The illusions can only be experienced on the originals, live on site! Get involved in the rendezvous with the masters of illusions and experience the magic of this encounter.
