This object isn’t there. Your eyes are fooling you,  Photos http://b4in.org/f6Vg

These designs were created by Felice Varini, a Swiss artist. His works appear to be three-dimensional from one angle, however, but are in fact well-placed and well-manipulated flat graphics painted onto flat surfaces.

According to mathematics professor and art critic Joël Koskas, “A work of Varini is an anti-Mona Lisa.”

Story
Tagline
A 'Matter Manipulator' aka Artist in Kansas City, Missouri · "I am an artist celebrating the transformation of human consciousness using the ancient language of sacred geometry in my art."
Introduction
Primary materials used are papercrete (shredded/recycled paper and concrete) with found objects and recycled materials incorporated.

Lynda J Leonard ~ Matter Manipulator aka Artist

I have to thank Mike Dooley for the term, 'Matter Manipulator', which fits well with what I am doing creatively. I have always collected interesting objects that cross my path with the idea that they would find a home in a project. I love the magic that happens when disparate items are brought together in ways not thought of before. I consider these found treasures gifts from the universe, later mixing them with other discarded/saved treasures to give new life and meaning to what others think of as trash. The history, color, shape, texture of these items tell a story that enhances and brings transformation, new life and meaning to items discarded by others.

As a mixed media artist, my goal is to create works that reflect our history, layers of experience, connections, puzzles, lessons...the mystery and magic of transformation in life. My work is about places in the heart, places in the mind, spaces in time. The “continuum of winds, circles, patterns, change” is a title and theme for my art that continues to intrigue. This theme symbolizes the recurring issues, problems, lessons, and experiences that we find ourselves going through, individually and collectively, as we go through life. I find this theme recurring in my thoughts and ideas continue to come to me that relate to the continuous river of life events, that I see symbolically as winds, circles, patterns, change depicted with the use of geometric symbols as pyramids, circles, spirals and other sacred geometry symbols. This theme symbolizes the continuous river of change, collectively and individually that challenges each of us in this ‘beautiful mess’ we call Life!

My exploration of 'papercrete' (shredded, recycled paper mixed with concrete) came from stumbling across a DIY Yahoo Group talking about this stuff called, 'papercrete' that they were using to build adobe type buildings. I experimented with small batches and now consider it a plausible art material that I am excited to explore to create larger works. Papercrete is a malleable material, that I tend to work/treat like clay. I am having lots of fun learning what materials work with it and what can be done with it. I like the idea of saving some paper and other matter from landfills and seeing what new energy can be given to what otherwise is considered rubbish.

The phrase 'everything is energy' has always intrigued me and now I seek to give a visual context to how energy can be transformed from one form to another by 'manipulating matter'. I am a 'Matter Manipulator' aka Artist, exploring 'papercrete', mixed media, and found objects. Reuse, recycle, re-purpose, reclaim, re-invent is my modus operandi. ~ljl~
