Paradox Inside work: Perspexive 2

His work on Perspex came about after discovering the interesting method of painting onto the back of clear materials. By painting onto Perspex it is possible to break down a 2D image into multiple, layered parts. This allows the viewer to physically walk through the layers seeing each abstracted element of this overlapping, 3D art puzzle slowly coming together. When visitors see the work from the viewing point, the final image can be seen as a complete whole.
