The work explores the qualities of light and surface, but the most unique and impressive part to me is the fact that as the light changes, changes the visual appearance of the work itself. In fact, the work never stays the same and constantly responds to the changes of light or its absence. The relief in combination with light creates a sense of a third dimension, which continuously deludes the viewer.
I really enjoy the technique in visual arts where the work visually confuses the viewer and makes them question what they actually see. I want to incorporate relief and reflective materials in my own practice and explore their relationship with light.
