solar art / solar pyrography
The surface of this magnificently presented original birchwood panel, whose outer burlwood-framed dimensions measure approximately 25"W x 25"H, has been 'etched' by training the sun's rays & energy through a magnifying lens which produces a tiny laser-like beam… When focused on the wood, the resulting 'laser' burns the wood's surface. Reliant on weather conditions & difficult to control, the process is time-consuming & painstaking, often requiring several days, or even weeks, to complete. Although this medium has been in practice for centuries, it remains uncommon in the artworld.
Pizer's keen eye for design is immediately evident in his inspired, imaginative output. Marked by bold contrast & nuance, his work is compelling, exotic, powerful, graceful, evocative, sensual, & provocative. With his highly distinctive, eye-popping creations, Pizer has raised the bar & elevated the artform to a new level. His artwork has been exhibited & is on display in galleries, businesses, & private collections.
Double-framed & double-mounted, the piece makes a dramatic display with stunning visual impact & eye-appeal. This original work is hand-signed on the back by the artist.
