glass blue inked water and mineral oil

36” x 24”, custom sizes and substrates available

This image was an experiment with both light and mixing of liquids. The colored ink - water mixture was in a glass vase side and top light. The torrent and turbulence is created by pouring in mineral oil. Multiple images were captured and these two are the most emotive and compelling. The production stage allows the image to have different highlights throughout the day as the lighting in a room changes. The right side highlights are due to the mineral oil generating waves and reflections, while the right sides a quieter sense. The round vase pushes through the focal plane in the middle, staying in focus on the sides adding to the compelling draw of the eye.
