The Surface of Convexity
The Surface of Convexity
Oil on canvas
11" x 14"

A study of a die-cut chrome plated ball placed on a piece of paper with a blue and white ray pattern. The intent was to describe the surface of a highly reflective convex object. I also wanted to show the relativity of a personal point of view. Again, there is a play of perception that exists between focus on the object and focus on the reflection on the object's surface. The composition pulls the viewer's eye forward at points that are physically furthest away from the object and leads the eye back to an abyss-like depth at the pinnacle of the object. This counter-intuitive relationship will change based on the perspective and personal experiences of the viewer.
