Postmodern Trompe l'oeil

What you're looking at is an oil painting, not a work of collage. Titled "Blue Eye" 2006, this work really makes you think you're looking at an altogether cool looking collage made of tinted and colored papers and masking tape. I liked his work before I found out that these are oil paintings - which makes this all the more fascinating




Both images are from his site; KeesGoudzwaard.org.

You'll also find his work at the Xeno Gallery where you can see installation shots of his paintings.

Yrjö Edelmann did stuff like this in the 1970s

Thank you for that information - I had never heard of him. He's quite accomplished.
