Painting is the controlled application of different colored pigments to a flat surface. By using suitable styles and patterns of paint, one can create the illusion of a three-dimensional space, represent an object from reality, or create a variety of abstract forms.
In this painting, I set out to prove that multiple realities and perspectives could be represented side by side without violating the artistic unity of a piece. I wanted to determine whether or not isometric and flat elements could exist within a coherent linear perspective, next to more representational objects and spaces that fall back within the image. I further felt the desire to have regions of similar kinds of representations – worlds of a sort - and to have this contrast be between these spaces of similarity.
