Gallery of MC Escher Artwork Tessellations
Images in the MC Escher artwork gallery, especially the paintings of tessellations are fascinating scenes with optical illusions, waterfalls, reptiles, castles, stairs, drawing hands, and spheres. Known first for his mastery of woodcuts; his drawings and graphic work are complex and very detailed.
The word tessellation is not often used in everyday language and is sometimes spelled tesselation so I looked it up in two places:
- American Heritage definition of tessellation: - To form into a mosaic pattern, as by using small squares of stone or glass.
- WordNet's definition is:Tessellation - The careful juxtaposition of shapes in a pattern; "a tessellation of hexagons"
The MC Escher tessellation artwork is often loaded with reptiles, fish, and birds forming patterns. What is so interesting and distinctive about his artwork is the way he blended the pattern of one object into another.
MC Escher reptiles
One of his most innovative pieces called Reptiles shows a circle of reptiles. One of the reptiles appears to grow or emerge out of a picture in an open book. Then there are several three dimensional reptiles in the circle. Lastly, a reptiles seems to blend back into the picture in the book. It is a work of genius.
