'Use Your Illusion IV' is based on an intricately cut and layered paper composition--my latest challenge to trap the dynamic vibrating energy of my 3-dimensional Lenticular Paintings (LPs) within a 2D realm. Works in this ongoing series are abstracted portraits inspired by hidden personality information and the guiding music contained within the patterns of record collections.
