Op Dots

This Blog is several years old now and I've been more than amazed by the amount of artists who give so much consideration and consistent effort to working with the simple shape of a dot. Each artist has their own compositional agenda and the reasons and oeuvres are seemingly endless.

Remember Op Art ? Well, Valerie Arber gives us these sweet, simple compositions with just a touch of Op.

Good luck searching for more examples of her work on the Web. These are 2 of 6 images that you'll find at the Rule Gallery, where they hint at some of her influences.

Valerie was born in Englewood, New Jersey in 1949. She studied at Leksand Folkhögskola, Leksand, Sweden in 1969-1970 and received her B.F.A. (drawing) from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque in 1973. Currently she's living and working in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Marfa, Texas.
