Diamonds are often thought of as objects of beauty, but very few artists have used the gems as subjects the way Jonathan Saiz has. And it isnâ€™t as though Saiz is content with simply emulating the look of those shiny rocks; he actually paints complex scenes into the facets of the precious stones. Gaze long enough into these paintings and youâ€™ll find cathedrals, statues, people riding on horseback and grim skulls hidden away. Itâ€™s almost as though each diamond acts as a time capsule for human art and history.
Jonathan Saizâ€™s use of pastel and muted colors is also worth mentioning as they add personality to the individual gems. And itâ€™s quite remarkable that heâ€™s able to capture the reflective nature of diamonds almost in a hyperrealistic manner.
