"The more I have learned about how we perceive
and our mechanisms of perception the more I
have come to believe that all sensory perception
is subjective. We never perceive things objectively
as they are. We always perceive them subjectively
as we are. All sensory perception is illusion.
Therefore everyone’s truth is true but everyone’s
truth is different."
Seymour Hal Rogoff
"Called by critics a 'color theorist,' 'communications expert,' and 'The Wizard of Op'" The
Park Forest Star, May 11, 1969 Hal became the first artist to successfully paint with the
concept of color as light energy. His hard-edge geometric artwork is aesthetically
appealing and demonstrates and corrects many color principles. Hal hoped to provide a
road-map from which future artists can master the visual language.
"I determined to develop a symbolic
statement for our culture in which we
are all interdependent on one
another. I was looking for a way to
do this when I saw Esher's design of
birds and fish. Social Pattern Dancers
is the result." - Hal Rogoff
