Unformatted text preview: Escher liked to create “impossible reality”. In the waterfall picture, you can observe that it looks like the aqueduct-like structure is all at the same height. If you look at it differently, though it appears to be slanted. If you look at the upper part of the picture, you can see how he used shapes and made them look three dimensional. He used a lot of geometric shapes in his art, showing how they could fit together in different ways. Escher didn’t do well in school, but he was a genius. He had a great understanding of math, especially geometry, and his work shows it. He lived over 100 years ago, but his work is still unique and continues to fascinate people today.
