Bas Relief 2017BR025
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 crumbling pattern that folds in to the canvas and creates this stunning illusion. As the main body is elevated the perspective is changed and you eye drawn to the shadow inside. A unique piece of art by a talented artist.46cm x 61cm x 2cm. Linen. Volumes made from 500g Bristol paper. Oil paints and patina.
