This Mixed Media work of art is based on a photo of the new orb of lights in the John Hancock Center lobby in Chicago. It is called "Lucent," a three-dimensional sculpture by Wolfgang Buttress. The photo was post processed using a series of fractal layers and lighting effects. The Lucent semi-sphere accurately maps the stars seen from the Northern Hemisphere, with the lights even twinkling throughout the day. The lights are cast between a mirrored ceiling and a black granite pool below, suggesting a sense of infinity. This is the original Masterpiece Edition created by adding texture with many layers of acrylic paint and varnish. Thus, Masterpiece Editions, which are limited to a maximum of ten, become a one-of-kind works of art, by capturing the light and providing the depth of colors to create a three-dimensional effect. Masterpiece Editions come with a Certificate of Authenticity and are numbered and signed by the artist. This would make a stunning statement in the lounge, den, bedroom or office.
