Watch this piece come together in 45 seconds
Art must be experienced in person for full effect. I’ll never forget the first time I ran my fingers across the surface of a lusciously impasto Picasso with awe at what I had been missing studying the works of my predecessors from photographs alone.
The pieces I create are best viewed in person as well – the play of light across them causes change and movement in a variety of ways depending on the setting.
Natural light and shadow give a gradated effect in this shot. Upon close-quarter viewing, the reflective surfaces pick up tones from the viewer and mirror them back subtly.
Low-level diffused light from above brings out the deep, earthy gold tones in this example.
