Classic works of art get a new spin through the eye of New York artist Devorah Sperber. Devorah Sperber: Threads of Perception will go on exhibit at the Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah August 21-October 31, 2010. Sperber's most recent work takes famous paintings from art history like the Mona Lisa shown above. Using a computer she pixelates the images and then uses spools of thread to serve as pixels. The spool-constructed pieces are mounted inverted so that the image is viewed upside down and recognizable only when viewed through an acrylic sphere. Looking at it through the naked eye it appears as a blur of color but when viewed through the sphere it pops into focus. The Kimball Art Center will feature 13 of Sperber's pieces in the exhibit, "Threads of Perception" in the Main Gallery August 21- October 31, 2010.
