Reverse glass painting is a new and exciting technique I have been practicing over the last couple of years. The concept is very similar to traditional signwriting, with my own detailed twist.
Both back and front side views of the glass have been painted in reverse on 4mm super clear glass. They are then fitted together, painted sides facing in, creating a painting sculpture that suspends the image in space.
I have constantly searched, in my art practice, for a way to bring the painted creation into the space of the viewer. The glass allows the painting to interact with the outside world through the shadow play of the image being cast which moves depending on the light source.
The wooden bases are made from Australian hardwood, handcrafted by yours truly.
