Used Motor Oil Reflecting the Architectural Splendor of a Church

Used Motor Oil Reflecting the Architectural Splendor of a Church

Swiss artist Romain Crelier, created this visually appealing artwork installed on the floor of the Bellelay Abbey in Switzerland in 2013. The work is a classic and clever merging of two shallow pools of used motor oil functioning as mirrors, reflecting the architectural details of the surrounding interior. The artist referred to the piece as “monochrome paintings using a despised substance.” You can see more photos on We Find Wildness.
