Ben Hirschkoff: Oasis

Oasis.13" x 17".  adhesive plexiglass on tape.

This piece, titled Oasis, relates to the Neo-Impressionist style called Pointallism.  This technique relies on the perceptive ability of the eye and mind of the viewer to mix the color spots into a fuller range of tones.  The minimal desert subject matter was chosen to emphasize the illusory nature of this effect.
