Bas Relief 2015BR012
by Benjamin Plé
French artist Benjamin Plé's work maintains a level of playful abstraction, inspired by architectural spaces and object design. His stunning bas reliefs are sculptural pieces that are an optical illusion of sorts. There's a sense of symmetry across the form but a strong presence is felt through the use of depth and shape alone.
This specific piece features a grid pattern that disperses toward the edge of the canvas. As the boxes are elevated the perspective is changed and you eye drawn to the shadow inside. A unique piece of art by a talented artist.113cm x 162cm x 3cm. Canvas covered with linen. Volumes made from 500g Bristol paper. Oil paints and patina.
