Is Reality Really Real?

  • Laura Pesce
Chapter

Abstract

Escher has probably been the most emblematic and maybe the most original artist in recent times. He once said “Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible”. And, with his extraordinary fantasies and equally extraordinary drawing abilities, he did indeed succeed in creating seemingly real situations in scenarios that were completely out of this world. Through drawings made with mathematical precision, he was able to lead the viewer beyond the known (or possible?) reality.
