Dazzle camouflage is one of the most strikingly aesthetic tools of war ever employed. Beautiful, stunning and, in practice, terrifying, it was a rare occurrence where art was the technology and war became the medium. Although its more jarring variations were discontinued following World War II, dazzle camouflage is still influencing and stimulating artists to form intense compositions of clashing geometries and patterns.
Following on from Dazzle: Disguise and Disruption in War and Art at St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery, Lymington, this exhibition showcases those artists who have taken a dazzle aesthetic and divorced it from the theatre of war, bringing ideas and designs to a modern audience in cities and galleries.
