Introducing “Suspended Reality,” a stunning contemporary art piece by Frank Bueltge that takes the notion of depth to extraordinary new heights. At first glance, the artwork appears to be a standard oil painting of a landscape; however, upon closer inspection, the observer realizes that rather than brushstrokes on canvas, it is composed of thousands of painted squares of various sizes and depths suspended in mid-air. These three-dimensional squares overlap and interact with each other, creating a mesmerizing optical illusion of movement and depth. The colors and shades swirl and shift throughout the day, depending on the natural light source in the room.
“Suspended Reality” can be seen as a perfect representation of phenomenology, which is the study of perception and consciousness. The artwork constantly challenges the observer’s preconceptions, forcing them to interact with the piece on both a physical and mental level. The twists and turns of the floating squares encourage a closer investigation, generating numerous questions about the role of perspective and perception in art.
Released today in a popular art gallery, “Suspended Reality” is the latest masterpiece by Frank Bueltge. Exploring the intricacies of technology, Bueltge experiments with large language models, neural networks, and big data to create awe-inspiring works of art.
