Three-Dimensional Glass Paintings By Wilfried Grootens

Words

German artist Wilfried Grootens creates glass paintings of various geometric forms for the series ‘Where The Shark Bubbles Blow’. Suspended in layers of glass, the fine linear brush strokes create three-dimensional artworks that seem to be floating. In a statement about his work, Grootens says: “In this way variations of forms are created, mirror axes, views of one and the same body depending on one’s point of observation.” His work has won several awards and is internationally exhibited.
