Sophia Loren Original painting on glass
Dimensions: 53x53 cm
Wooden white box frame
Mediums: Spray paints on glass
Painted on the reverse side of the glass using hand cut stencils and spray paint. the white areas are actually clear glass and the white background can be seen through it. the deep box frame gives the portrait a 3 dimensional feel and the illusion of floating in the air.
The halftone image is comprised of lines rather than continuous tones. When viewed from a distance, the lines blur and blend together, creating the illusion of continuous shapes and shades.
At a distance the image is clear and almost photographic whereas close up the image is made up of bold lines.
