Three-Dimensional-Trees-Painted-Glass

Turkish arist Ardan Ozmenoglu has created a series of three-dimensional trees out of layers of painted glass. The purpose of the project was to provide a social commentary of transience versus permanence in human culture and to encourage people to look at things from multiple perspectives.

Artist’s statement

I slice a flat image down to its constituent parts, like the levels of a topographic map. The flat image, existing now on multiple slides of glass, is abstracted and becomes sculpture, captured within and between the glass as it interacts with its medium and becomes a different image depending on the position of the viewer. This is the creation of dimension, mood and meaning for the viewer.

Van Gogh trees

Artist [show]Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890)     TitleThe Large Plane Trees (Road Menders at Saint-Rémy) Description English: In 1889, after suffering a severe hallucinatory seizure, Van Gogh committed himself to an asylum near Saint-Rémy. While walking through the town that fall, he was impressed by the sight of men repairing a road beneath immense plane trees. Rushing to capture the yellowing leaves, he painted this composition on an unusual cloth with a pattern of small red diamonds, visible in the picture’s many unpainted areas. “In spite of the cold,” he wrote to his brother, “I have gone on working outside till now, and I think it is doing me good and the work too.” After painting this composition directly from nature, Van Gogh used it to produce a second version in the studio known as The Road Menders at Saint-Rémy. Painted on a traditional canvas covered by a ground layer, the second version is more restrained, the explosive yellows balanced by larger areas of cool color.[1] ↑ Cleveland Museum of Art DateSaint-Rémy, November 1889 Mediumoil on canvas Dimensions	73.4 × 91.8 cm (28.9 × 36.1 in)
