Making the ordinary extraordinary – part 3

Having enjoyed my return to a painting medium but keen to explore how  we currently see the world through screens of glass I decided to start painting on glass (something I did quite a lot of in 1st year) and experiment with how  the viewer sees through this.

Working with glass reminded me of the work of Robert Rauschenburg and Jeffrey Sarmiento

 

Jeffrey Sarmiento glass works

I  took my glass work into a windowless bathroom with a full length mirror and  experimented with light and reflection.

 

By placing small battery operated lights beneath the painted glass and turning off the remaining  lights the images that glow through the glass are fascinating.  When viewed against the mirror the images are further distorted

Trying to imaging these images on a large scale

These images that seem almost planetary bring to mind the work of Sara Oskarsson who uses chemistry to create fluid images that emulate nature’s  forces and dynamism

 

 

I accidently moved the camera while photographing these images and the resulting imaged remind me of laser lights and I really liked the ‘mistakes’

  .

The light effect brought to mind this image that I have saved
