WHY WE LOVE THE OP ART DISH
IN THE PRESS
For the first time ever, Gina Julian translates the iconic op-art paintings she is known for into a high end home decor product: a beautiful dish available in two of her signature op-art designs.
The dishes are etched with the artist's signature.
Packaged in a co-branded white box, your dish arrives ready to gift.
Gina Julian is a hard-edge abstraction painter who seeks to explore energy and motion through the use of flat color. She has long been fascinated by the effects of color on the human psyche and enjoys exploring the emotions that can be evoked by varying colors according to hue, saturation and value. Her color palettes are often experimentations of how colors interact with each other, and how the perception of color can be altered based on its surroundings. Gina also uses color variations to suggest movement in her works, often giving the viewer multiple perspectives on the direction of her crisp lines. She classifies her work as Optical Art. Gina was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee. With over 20 years of art direction, publishing and web development experience under her belt, she now enjoys painting full-time from her studio in Franklin, Tennessee. She has a love of interior design and wholeheartedly believes in the positive impact of living with art and experiencing it on a daily basis.
ON THE COLLABORATION
My Op Art designs are a direct reflection of my years spent as an interface designer, coupled with my love of playing with color. Most of my Op Art shapes are symmetrical in nature and this allows me to play with asymmetrical color combinations. I love delighting my collectors with unexpected color palettes!Gina JulianFranklin, TN
I've always felt that living with beautiful art in our homes can have such a positive impact on our lives, and I know that making art more accessible for everyone is part of Artsugar's mission. I'm so happy to be listed amongst their roster of talented artists and to have the opportunity to release a high-quality, limited-edition home decor product with them.Gina JulianFranklin, TN
I am thrilled to launch ArtSugar's second collaboration with Gina Julian just in time for Mother’s Day! For the first time ever, Gina translates the iconic op-art paintings she is known for into a high end home decor product: a beautiful dish available in two of Gina’s signature op-art designs.Alix GreenbergFounder, ArtSugar
I am personally passionate about this collaboration because I love when artists today look to art history to inform their artistic choices and op-art is one of my favorite movements. Op - Art came into prominence in the 1960s as artists were using geometric forms to render optical effects that drew on perception, color theory and psychology. Gina, clearly a color theory expert, looks to this movement, as she systematically renders lines of bold colors that create such dynamism when placed side by side, an actual pulsation can be perceived by the human eye. A master of optical illusion, anything Gina creates jumps right off wall, and in the case with the dish, right off your table, shelf or nightstand.Alix GreenbergFounder, ArtSugar
