A perplexing visual palindrome

This little lady’s been creating quite a stir on the internet.

Which way does the dancer spin for you?

Watch out: you may see her change directions, especially if you stare at her long enough. For more on this phenomenon and an explanation of why it occurs, click here.

For a more soothing, but equally palindromic image, check out this painting by Mark Dutcher, part of a new exhibit at Studio Channel Islands Art Center, opening May 10.

Here’s what the studio has to say about Dutcher’s work:

Epiphany as healing, breakthrough as surrender and placid resolve, Dutcher’s Portal works on paper offer meditations on a stasis between the physical and ethereal. These serene mandala-like images are as complex as his traditional oeuvre of heavy brush strokes and explosive terrains of paint and vibrating colors, but their intensity and beauty have a more internal resonance and delicate patterning encapsulated within the primordial and powerful image of the circle.

No lemon no melon!
