Description

Peter D. Gerakaris’ paintings originate from his explorations of art history, nature and the world at large. He has absorbed multi-cultural aesthetic language into his works that burst with saturated colors and fantastical hyperrealist details to playfully invite the viewer into his mesmerizing world. In the current work titled Piton Opera Mask Remix (2015) Gerakaris plays with the dazzling colors and abstract forms to create a kaleidoscopic image of a fantastical female face.

Enhanced color experience can be achieved with ChromaDepth 3D Glasses, which “lift” certain colors off the surface, while pushing other colors “behind” the surface. Note: these are not the same as conventional 3D Cinema Glasses.

Location

This work ships from New York, NY, US.
