3D Technique


Clasen skillfully combines traditional elements with a new technique she devised back in Germany: the creation of a three-dimensional space within a two-dimensional painting achieved by stretching three layers of canvas, each 2 cm apart. Starting from the center (sometimes from a mirror), she cuts her way through the canvases thus allowing not only for further depth of the painting but also inviting the sunlight to produce moving shadows on her work. We are invited to explore what lies behind the surface of a seemingly bright and cheerful painting.
