Striped Water

by Steve Purnell
DESCRIPTION

Fine art print on bright white, fine poly-cotton blend, matte canvas using latest generation Epson archival inks. Individually trimmed and hand stretched museum wrap over 1-1/2" deep wood stretcher bars. Includes wall hanging hardware.

ABOUT THE ART

This is a glass of water shot against a striped background to illustrate the effect of water in refracting light.

In September 2014 I received an e-mail from a school in Hungary requesting that they be allowed to recreate this piece using Lego. I gave my agreement and the completed Lego replica is due to go into the exhibition on 29 January 2015. It took a team of 8 some 36 hours and over 7,000 Lego bricks to complete.

steve, I saw this featured in a magazine somewhere. Were you aware of that?
Steve Purnell commented on November 7, 2013 12:07am
Thank you Katy. The only place that I am aware that this has been featured is in the Design Milk Dairy Collection on Society 6 and they have a blog/magazine and I found it in there. If you do come across the article again I would love to know as I have not given permission for it to be used anywhere.
