Have you ever wondered how a lenticular image is made? The vintage technology utilizes specific lenses to produce printed images with an illusion of depth or movement. Lenticular artist Heather Lowe will present a variety of examples and share some secrets of the craft. Learn about the process, examine different lenticular lens styles, and go through the laminating technique twice to experience both flipping and morphing effects. A starter’s material list and contacts will be provided for those who wish to pursue the art. Each participant will have a chance to laminate two 4 x 6” lenticulars to take home using interlaces created by Lowe. If you prefer, you can send Heather your own images to use (at least 3 days before class, call for details.).
Short classes make parking a breeze! $1 for 2.5 hours at Structure 6, right around the corner.
Heather Lowe was born in Santa Monica and now resides in Los Angeles, where she has been devoted to work in visual illusion for over twenty years. Her artwork is grounded in visual perception, and her influences include Goethe, Josef Albers, Yaacov Agam, Julian Stanczak, Jesús Rafael Soto and Bridget Riley. She began painting through the discovery of principles of perception and her academic studies included drawing, printmaking, and painting. Lowe's interest in visual illusion led her to study stereography and lenticular art. Applying drawing, digital means and some photography to the lenticular medium, she continues to investigate new forms that will illuminate a deeper understanding of perception. She has exhibited in both commercial and non-profit galleries. Her lenticulars can be seen on youtube and her work has been exhibited at Alexandria Museum of Art, L.A. Artcore, Pershing Square, the Wiltern Building in Los Angeles, and in many group exhibitions both in United States and abroad.
