Reverse Oil Paintings
on Glass / Plexi
Here is a collection of reverse paintings, completed in 2016 by Self-taught, Croatian-born American, Naive artist, Branko Paradis. Beginning with the smallest details, layers of paint are gradually applied to the entire reverse side of the glass or plexi, until the entire reverse side is completed and dry. The finished painting is then viewed from the unpainted side. This is extremely intense, laborious and time-consuming work, especially when there so many details, as in Paradis' work.
NOTE: These imperfect photos were taken through the surface, which is highly reflective. All originals are framed and ready to hang. These frames can be easily removed, and replaced with your own choices.
