Specular Reflection by Katharine Weber. Media: Mixed Media.
“Specular Reflection” employs fabric and acrylic to create this rich, dimensional painting. The sculptural folds in the surface become translucent in the process, allowing the painting beneath to show through to varying degrees. Specular reflection is the term used to describe the effect of a surface, like a calm body of water, reflecting like a mirror. Beneath the cloth is a painting of mountains reflecting in this manner across a lake.
