Strata #4 focuses on several iconic paintings by Rubens and Van Dyck from the Flemish collection of Palais des Beaux-Arts in Lille, France. This work—one piece in an ongoing series—is the result of an exploration of the paintings themselves, delving beneath their figurative appearance and looking at the rules behind the compositions, color schemes, and proportions of each artwork. This precise process was aimed at creating new contemporary images based on universal rules of beauty and perfection. Documenting the improbable collisions
between classical figuration and contemporary abstraction, Strata #4 aims to create a harmonious dialogue between worlds that
may appear very distant from one another, but in fact have much in common.
