op Art

Time Magazine cointed the term Op Art in 1964. The article was about a show called Optical Paintings by the artist, Julian Stanczak. Of course the term Op Art is used to refer to abstract, non-objective art that creates optical illusions. Commonly the illusions might be a suggestion of movement, vibrant effects of contrasting colors, hidden images, after images or creating an appearance a surface bubbling out, going deeper into space or warping in some other manner.
