Optical Float Paintings by Wilfried Grootens

Published Nov 4, 2015

German artist Wilfried Grootens paints mesmerizing optical illusions suspended in layers of glass.

“These strangely precise optical float paintings take on the form of some fantastic microscopic creatures and are sometimes reminiscent of the photos depicting the milliseconds before a nuclear explosion. The design of each cube is so precise, the thin layers of paint appear to completely vanish when viewed from a side angle.”
