2d mixed media
I use individually cut paper paint swatches in a collage form to create pixilated images of landscapes, cityscapes, portraits and famous works of art. From a distance, the colors blend to create a photo realistic quality, with the individual ‘pixels’ becoming more distinguishable the closer the viewer moves to the piece. When viewed up close, the meticulous arrangement of the paper is truly impressive, and the volume of colors used to create each palette is visually mesmerizing. When viewed through a cell phone or at a distance, the images become clear and details seem to jump off of the viewing plane displaying Gestalt psychology and how your brain connects the dots (or squares in this case) based on experience. The cell phone acts as a filter, and this unique way to view my art creates a fun and interactive experience for the viewer.
