Additional Information

Quote from BAM "Fabricated from the simplest of materials, Chromomotion is a heady mix of exotic shapes and colors which could also be either music or animation, or perhaps all four. Carefully shaded to give a trompe l'oeil (trick of the eye)— two dimensional shapes shaded to look three dimensional—they give back to the viewer all that the audience puts in and more. Retro, yet fully contemporary, the artist asks the audience to forgo any preconception of artistic utility or meaning, and simply experience, engage and enjoy all the sensations of seeing."
