Katia Iosca is an artist based in France who uses a combination of digital and print media to build complex, geometric works of op-art. The artist has produced series in striking black and white, as well as layered colour.
I really enjoy the way that Iosca achieves a perfect, digital edge to her works. One can easily draw parallels between these works and those of op artists Bridget Riley or Carlos Cruz-Diez. The artist’s colour works, in particular, evoke a dizzying sense of mathematics, while borrowing the aesthetics from old-school spirograph drawings made in pencil crayon or coloured ink.
The artist’s black and white works have a heavier, more monolithic feeling to them. Rather than patterns on a sheet of paper, looking at these one gets a sense of depth and volume, as though each work depicts a solid object, seen close-up or at odd angles so as to confound a complete understanding.
