The Sound of Silence

[Stop by the Mitten Brewing Company to say hi and see my work. Watch the video below to see how my art works.] When illuminated, my work appears to be a photograph. Of the images shown above in my ArtPrize entry, only one displays a photograph. The remaining images feature three-dimensional carvings. My medium is semi-translucent white acrylic only 1/4" thick. I illuminate my carvings from the back with a thin, LED light panel--also 1/4" thick. My carvings are based upon photographs of all types. For ArtPrize, I have carved a large framed piece based upon this photograph of President and Mrs. Kennedy. I wanted to create something iconic and recognizable even without illumination. Take a look-see at my profile to learn more about me and see more examples of my work.
