Original Abstract Paintings Optical Illusions by Ken Gidge
Abstract ART that becomes 3-Dimensional shapes you Simply have to See to Believe...
Welcome to the official home of Ken Gidge's original 3-D paintings. These are one-of-a-kind, contemporary, abstract pieces of modern art. We use the term "modern" quite loosely as they can more accurately be described as "futuristic." What could be futuristic about these neon paintings? you might ask. While the technical answer is a closely guarded secret, the results are nothing short of spectacular. Ken has developed his very own, and quite literally "one-of-a-kind" technique for formulating rich neon paints and applying them to canvas in such a way that when viewed through ChromaDepth glasses with bifocal vision, the high contrasting abstract neon designs and patterns leap off the canvas in a multitude of psychedelic layers. Only these GidgeWorld 3D original paintings are guaranteed to project holographic colors that appear to be floating in front of, or diving deep into the canvas. Our beautiful hand painted pieces of art are extremely colorful and will brighten up any room with their eye-catching colors alone, but when you or your guests put on the 3D glasses, the paintings come alive with a vibrant array of natural shapes, splatters, and concentric designs. Ken's original 3D artworks are available ranging from sample-size at 4 x 4 inches, to quite large gallery-size at 36 x 24 inches, and everything in between.
