Flowers Gallery is pleased to announce a retrospective exhibition by the late British artist and pioneer of Optical Art, Michael Kidner RA (1917-2009). This exhibition presents a significant range of works across his career from 1956 to 2009.

Art critic and historian Irving Sandler described Michael Kidner as “arguably the first of the Op artists in Britain.” Both rational and playful, Kidner’s art has combined visual responses to the principles of mathematics, science, and chaos theories, alongside an interest in the irrational and unpredictable nature of the human condition. He said, “Unless you read a painting as a feeling, then you don’t get anything at all.”
