BITS – AMOEBA

In ALL, BITS by Alex Pedersen

Artist Thomas Medicus stays true to his stained glass roots in his latest exhibition, Amoeba:

“The stained glass sculpture is primarily inspired by the idea of a giant floating fluorescent amoeba. By combining and abstracting visually significant characteristics also of other living forms the art piece points to the fascination about life as a phenomenon that is difficult to grasp. Since the sculpture shines, it arouses curiosity from great distance, only by getting closer to the piece its detailed painted patterns can be spotted. (2016).”
