Escama at the Dali Museum

This special exhibition highlights M.C. Escher, a renowned artist, whose visual illusions puzzle and delight audiences worldwide, and is best known for his “impossible constructions” and use of tessellation. The robust exhibit features 135 works covering Escher’s entire artistic career, including an array of his most recognizable works such as “Drawing Hands,” “Reptiles” and “Waterfall” alongside rarely exhibited early drawings of family members, panoramas of exotic landscapes and historic architecture of Italy and Spain, original preparatory sketches, mezzotints and more.

Escher, like Dali, played in a serious way with that fundamental question of visual art – What is real? Is the world as it looks to be, or have I constructed an illusion in my mind? Escher delights every viewer with his visual sleights of hand,” said Hank Hine, Dali Museum Executive Director.

“Escher at the Dali” features prints, drawings, a sculpture, wood blocks, a lithograph stone and posters drawn by the artist to explain his printing techniques. The exhibit will delve into his exploration of infinity through tessellation, in which shapes fit together perfectly without overlapping, including an enormous woodcut “Metamorphosis” (1939-40) which spans 13-1/2 feet.

Escher at the Dali Museum

Escama products are now selling at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, FL. This is a big deal for us. It's our dream to be in museums, especially the architecturally stunning Dali. Our bags should fit well with the current exhibition on M.C. Escher. Escher's work frequently uses 'tessellation'  (a word that means 'a repeating pattern of geometric shapes'). Escama handbags also have this repetitive overlapping pattern of geometric shapes.

The Escher show opened at the Dali Museum in August  and will run through January 3, 2016. It will be followed by the exhibition Disney & Dali: Architects of the Imagination,  a great show that recently ran in San Francisco at the Disney Museum.

M.C. Escher, is best known for his “impossible constructions”, or visual illusion puzzles. The exhibition is on loan from the Herakleidon Museum in Athens, Greece, and features 135 works covering Escher’s entire career. The show includes his most famous works such as “Drawing Hands,” “Reptiles” and “Waterfall” alongside rarely exhibited early drawings of family members, panoramas of exotic landscapes and historic architecture of Italy and Spain.

Escher, like Dali, played in a serious way with the fundamental question of visual art -- What is real? Is the world as it looks to be, or have I constructed an illusion in my mind? Escher delights every viewer with this incredible detail, superb visual perception and skilled hand. Tessellation: Escher and Escama handbags
