Acrylic on canvas


Rendered with customized paint and other media, Aerial is a synchronous study of sea and sky, through the lens of a translucent box divided into two triangular segments at the canvas’ center. The structural symmetry provided by the segmented box mirrors the near-perfect symmetry found between sea and sky. However, just as the sea does not always fully or perfectly reflect the sky – whether due to ripples in the water or rocks disrupting its reflection – neither does any part of the canvas’s background perfectly mirror its opposite side. The translucent box placed carefully atop the mesmerizing background of Aerial succinctly communicates this-worldly near-perfect balance, by conveying symmetry on top of dissymmetry. Can be hung from any side. SIZING IS APPROXIMATE.
