Reverse glass painting by Francesco Longenecker
Recently I got to check out Francesco Longenecker’s work at Rare Gallery. Longenecker paints quirky, colourful compositions that employ the use of hinterglasamaleri- a type of reverse glass painting. It’s interesting to see how Longenecker takes this method into such an expressive route. It makes for a strange optical phenomena dealing with space that gives the work a unique depth.
