M.C. Escher Transformer Silk Tie in Black and Gray
M.C. Escher's Transformer Silk Tie in Black and Gray. Derived from Escher's design for a painted concrete pillar in the building of the Bureau of Water Management in Haarlem, Netherlands (1962). The design incorporates three water-related motifs (Symmetry Nos. 111, 112, 113) that flow into one another to create a vertical metamorphosis from bird and flying fish into boat and flying fish and finally into boat and fish.
The works of Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher (1898-1972) stands alone among artistic movements of the 20th century. In the geometric phenomena of symmetry, infinity, and paradoxes of perspective, Escher found rich material for his almost supernatural images. He used observations of the visible world, his own imagination or a combination of the two to create a masterful deception of the human eye.
