The thesis is researching the field of geometric abstraction within painting as well as the beginning and development of optical art through different periods of American and European art. I have generally introduced the historical development of abstraction combined with American painting and European Constructivism and with the parallel development of kinetic and optical art.
I have introduced the Op art using the examples of art works to explain the art legalities within optical variations such as movement, dynamic and color beaming. The influence of kinetic art in Op art development is explained using examples of different artists.
I have introduced some of the important foreign and Slovene authors and the examples of their work. Furthermore I have presented my own research of geometric and optic art and explained five of my own chosen artworks.
