Michael Kidner

About Artist: A pioneer of Optical Art, Kidner has devoted much of his career to developing work of a constructive nature. After brushes with American Abstract Expressionism and Bauhaus ideas he began to develop his own distinctive style. His interests in mathematics, science and the theories of chaos have informed an art that is at once rational and playful. Kidner’s translation of the dialogue between order and indeterminacy into a visual language has meant that his work – though founded in a rigorous intellectual approach to colour and form – also resonates emotionally: ‘Unless you read a painting as a feeling,’ he has said, ‘then you don’t get anything at all’. From the 1950s onwards his work has moved through various phases and modes of investigation, culminating in a prolific body that Kidner has expressed in chapters including After Image, The Stripe, The Moire, The Wave, Series, The Column, Lattice, Elastic and Pentagon.
