Little Details, Big Picture

The Nassau County Art Museum in Roslyn, NY featured some of the most interesting contemporary paintings I've seen in a long time.  Using patterns of color, texture, and text, the images remained abstract until viewed through the digital lens of my iPhone.  Ironically, the image could not be captured as the naked eye saw it; instead it morphed into a realistic portrait.  The top image by South African Gavin Rain was created from rings of colorful circles, only to become the visage of a movie star or political activist, an odd juxtaposition for certain.
