Julie Oppermann’s art challenges conventional perceptions of the world. Her paintings offer the viewer an intense physical experience, depicting vivid visual illusions that the artist creates by layering geometric patterns; a technique known as moiré. With her background in neuroscience, Oppermann explores the fluidity and paradoxes of human vision and, by extension, emotions and consciousness. In contrast to most Op Art artists, Oppermann allows for coincidence and her own handwriting, creating invigorating irritations on the otherwise well-planned canvas.

Julie Oppermann (born in San Francisco, USA, in 1982) is an artist based in New York and Berlin. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Cooper Union, a Master’s degree in Neuroscience from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Master of Fine Arts from Hunter College. Her works have been showcased in exhibitions throughout Europe and the United States, and they are featured in numerous private and public collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, California.
