Hyper-Realistic Glass Bags

Washington-based artist Dylan Martinez created stunning glass sculptures. His illusory series ‘H2O/SiO2’ combined several glassblowing and sculpting techniques to form hyper-realistic glass bags. Martinez mainly focused on avant-garde approaches that change the material thoroughly. His conceptual approach to art creates a moment that glosses over the viewer’s interpretation of reality and illusion. His curiosity in this subject matter of optical perception is driven by the fact that he was born red-green color blind. However, being a red-green color blind born provided Martinez with an alternative way of seeing and encourages him to make mesmerizing glass sculptures.
