Mesmerizing and peaceful, this illuminated painting invites viewers to contemplate subtle shifting patterns of rain through the torso-like tree stretching branches to the sky. Many layers of translucent acrylic paint are glazed over a textured relief surface painted on Plexiglass over shimmering L.E.D. lights (from recycled dairy milk meters) falling like a gentle spring rain through the painted forest. Rare, momentary flashes of computer code flash like lighting from the L.E.D.’s, a reminder of the embedded processor buried below the surface digitally controlling the custom sequences of rainfall. As time passes, the observer may notice the rainfall accelerating then slowing. Framed dimensions are 28” x 8” x 4.5” with a custom maple frame, Image dimensions are 17.5 x 9. L.E.D.’s use minimal energy and last incredibly long so this piece can be plugged in continuously and should last for decades.
