Artist Portfolio Magazine – Q2 Art Competition
- Paul Pinzarrone – Machesney Park, IL
This work is a study of how nature and power rhyme. It is a glimpse into my world of candy-colored sensual puzzles displayed on high gloss aluminum. The work draws the viewer in closer to feel comforted yet disturbed, to wonder if it is science fiction or science illustration, mythology or my updated version of art history. The viewer is invited in to play and explore these mirrors.
This work is digital. I use CAD, fractal software, flame painter and amber light software, painting software and digital photography to show you my world. The mandalas are built up using transparent layers, sometimes they are wrapped around figures to further develop the puzzle. Their skin is my canvas and the viewer struggles to determine if they’re photographs of tattoos, painted figures or something else other-worldly.
