William Strang’s ‘Bank Holiday’ painted in 1912 features his friends and family posed in an imaginary setting where he invites the viewer to speculate as to what exactly is going on in this scene. 🎩🐕💐
Damien Hirst's spot paintings are amongst his most widely recognised works. There are over 1000 in existence, dating from 1986 to 2011. The random and infinite coloured dots are integral to the works. Hirst explains that, 'mathematically, with the spot paintings, I probably discovered the most fundamentally important thing in any kind of art... the harmony of where colour can exist on its own, interacting with other colours in a perfect format.' Any problems he had previously had with colour he says were removed by the perfect arrangement of complementary, yet never repeated, colours in the spots. 🔴⚫🔵 Damien Hirst, Anthraquinone-1-Diazonium Chloride 1994, on free display in 'Op Art in Focus' @tateliverpool until 5 July 2020.

#ArtWords: Hyper-realism appeared in the early 1970s to describe highly realistic, lifelike sculpture and painting.
This sculpture, 'Spooning Couple' 2005 by Ron Mueck shows a high level of realism, from the texture of the skin to the careful placement of individual hairs. Mueck frequently experiments with the scale of his sculptures — some of his works are larger scale, but 'Spooning Couples' is approximately half life-size. Before working as an artist Mueck was a puppet and prop maker for television and film, where he developed his precise techniques.

Some of @studioolafureliasson’s artwork recreate natural phenomena such as rainbows. Others involve reflections and shadows to play with the way we navigate or perceive the world, exploring the artist’s interests in geometry, colour theory and sensory perception. We’ve teamed up with @WePresent to explore the thought-provoking world of Eliasson, with Tate curator Mark Godfrey. Link in our bio. 🌤️🌧️🌈 #OlafurEliasson, Beauty 1993. 📷: Anders Sune Berg.
