Amazing Multi-Layered Sculptures

Michael Murphy challenges the boundaries between the second and third dimensions in his art. What appears to be a painting is, in fact, a series of dissected layers, forming a figure when viewed from the right angle. His series, LOOK, forces the viewer to move around and observe each comprehensive piece from different perspectives.

In addition to the optical illusions he creates, Murphy works in a variety of mediums that include multi-layered sculptures, nail portraits, wire sculptures, sound installations, and shadow portraits. If you're in New York, you can view LOOK at Gallery Nine5 which is currently on exhibit until October 6, 2011.
