There’s been a lot of anamorphic art circulating lately, and impressive as it is, the process is usually pretty simple. A fixed viewpoint is established, and paint or materials are added to the scene until the illusion is complete. This picture by Georges Rousse is the first time I’ve seen someone do the opposite, which is to say actually subtract material from an existing structure. The result, while structurally unsound, is far more impressive.
More of Rousse’s work at butdoesitfloat and today and tomorrow.
