We're always being told that flash photography isn't allowed at art museums. I wanted to paint something that requires flash photography in order to get the full effect. Consider it to be like QR codes or augmented reality but without the hassle.
This is a proof-of-concept painting to see if an idea I had a year ago would actually work before I went on to paint a series of animals at night.
I originally considered using sequins but tried out green PVC backed with textured but concave aluminum foil. Ultimately, I decided to substitute the foil with rhinestones instead.
