Artist Portfolio Magazine – 2017 Q4 Art Competition
Paul Pinzarrone – Machesney Park, IL
This work is a study of how nature and power rhyme. It is an exploration of candy-colored sensual puzzles printed on high gloss aluminum. Viewers are drawn 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. All are 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 explore. The patterns are built up using transparent fractal layers, sometimes wrapped around figures and sometimes they become the environment. Their skin is my canvas and the viewer determines if they are photographs of tattoos, painted figures or something else other-worldly.
