Paintings Suspended in Layers of Glass by Wilfried Grootens

With my glass painting I fill transparent, geometric spaces whose visual explorations produce surprising variations in forms.

Different perspectives on apparent spherical floating built-up forms of linear brush strokes, reveal to the viewer new perspectives within the object’s space.
