Cross Modal Influences in perception of Visual Art 


© Roland Schimmel, 2013

In Dutch artist Roland Schimmel’s body of work, a key role is played by optical phenomena that are produced by the human body when exposed to certain visual data. In paintings and animations that have been made in the last twenty years, he makes way for and gives a place to so-called after-images. The artist has a specific view on the source of this natural phenomenon, quote Schimmel: “I regard after-images as the expression of the longing of my physical body for its origin, the light.”
