It’s not confetti, silly. If that association comes to mind, it’s not going to stick. Keep looking. Just look.
You’ll make some feeble attempts to figure out “what this is supposed to be” and your brain will give up. That’s good. Now keep looking.
Roughly, this painting can be categorized as Op Art. You don’t interpret op art. You keep looking and then your optic nerve goes into overdrive so that you experience a visual hallucination. Bridget Riley (b. 1931)and Victor Vasarely (1906-1997) are the masters of this genre.
You can’t interpret the image, but you can certainly be sobered by the tricks your imperfect perceptual apparatus plays on your mind. Sit back and spend a few minutes (or seconds?) gazing at one of these paintings. Get your cranium hosed out.
