Luminous artwork that is characterized by its ability to light up a room is the best way to describe New York City-based design studio Pelle's latest project. The endeavor is dubbed 'Incise Paintings' and it hovers the line between artistic expression and interior design.
The luminous artworks are comprised of a framed and boldly colored canvas with an incision as the name subtly suggests. Through the cut, Pelle incorporates light bulbs that poke out and create a mesmerizing effect that mixes materials and shadows. The "illusion of depth" plays a central role in the perception of audience members. The color palette is kept to four solid colors.
The entire Incise Paintings series draws inspiration from a 20th-century Argentine-Italian painter — Lucio Fontana.
