"Concave/Convex," 6x8, oil on canvas board


So the title isn't sexy, but the fun thing about this work was getting the avocado pit to come forward, and it's matching hole in the other half to go backwards. You have to establish a clear light source, and even then the directions can pop; i.e., suddenly it looks like the light source is on the other side, and the thing that sticks out now goes in (and vice versa). I remember drawing exercise using the same principle with ping pong balls in high school. That was tough.
