breathtaking art from Xia Xiao Wan

Perusing the latest issue of Hi*Fructose art publication, I became enthralled with the dimensional art of Xia Xiao Wan.

The artist paints layers of his images on successive panes of glass which are displayed spaced out slightly to give a more dimensional effect, like a series of MRI slices. I already have a great affection for glass, but these images seem so fragile and in some way more impactful and urgent than a crust of dried oil on a single flat surface.

Most of his images seem dark and some are disturbing in nature, but all are amazing.

Really cool.

Mixed media. Almost sculpture.
