The Brooklyn-based artist was inspired by Isaac Newton’s light refraction experiments, during which a ray of light splits into different wave lengths that make up the entire color spectrum. Another source of inspiration was Goethe’s color theory that deals with the way humans perceive color.

He painted every surface in strips of bright colors that spread across floors, walls, ceilings, and even go through door frames, picture rails and skirting-boards. These seamlessly uninterrupted lines visually merge the two spaces and change our perception of distance. Deliberate spatters and drips augment the experience of dissonance and fluctuation. The artwork is protected with a layer of epoxy resin that adds a mirroring effect to the already overwhelming visuals.
