After Vermeer 2

Completely amazed by this piece at the West Collection…“Utilizing inventive materials and optical tricks, New York-based artist Devorah Sperber re-creates masterpieces of art history in a way that positions them firmly in the contemporary moment. In "After Vermeer 2” thousands of spools of colored thread are arranged in a seemingly abstract pattern that suddenly pulls into focus when viewed through a circular viewing device.“
