Vanishing Point

Vanishing Point


Oil painting

Moon Gallery, Nanoracks, Voyager Space

Our spatial perception is unique and ultimately connected with the space we explore.  Here on Earth we construct perspective representation following general visual and mathematical laws and physiological abilities and limitations of human eye. In general the same rules will work on the Moon surface. Perspective representation helps to convey a spatial perception, where a vanishing point is a point to which parallel lines not parallel to the image plane appear to converge.

Oil painting ‘Vanishing Point’ represents a vanishing point in almost abstract way and was inspired by a realistic view of a channel in a Dutch city. For the Moon Gallery project the painting is located inside a cube and its image is continuing along the inner sides of the cube to exaggerate the spatial perception and illusion of infinity.

While this project is exposed within the Moon Gallery, the human spatial perception and the Space will merge together.
