Yosman Botero’s Made Matter of Empty

There’s something trippily surreal about artwork of people viewing artwork. But this is exactly the subject of some of Yosman Botero‘s recent work, a two-part series called Made Matter of Empty I and II.


The multimedia artist creates these stunning 3D optical illusions from his locale in Bogota through a meticulous process. Building a frameless box by stacking layers of plexiglass together, Yosman then creates the illusion of depth by painting flat subjects that float in between the layers. He then peppers these with a selection of other well-placed elements, whether a burst of floating bubbles or beautiful Spirograph-like cracks.
