Welcome to the official home of Ken Gidge's original 3D paintings. These are one of a kind, contemporary abstract pieces of modern art. We use the term "modern" quite loosely, as they could be more accurately described as "futuristic." What could be futuristic about these 3D paintings? you might ask. An excellent question indeed. The technical answer is a closely guarded secret, but the results are nothing short of spectacular. Ken Gidge has developed his very own, and quite literally "one-of-a-kind" technique for formulating rich neon paints and applying them to canvas in such a way that when viewed through ChromaDepth glasses with bi-focal vision, the high contrasting abstract neon designs and patterns leap off the canvas in a multitude of psychedelic layers. Only these Gidge 3D original paintings are guaranteed to project holographic colors that appear to be floating in front of or diving deep into the canvas. Our beautifully hand painted pieces of art are extremely colorful and will brighten up any room, but when you or your guests put on the 3D glasses, the paintings come alive with a vibrant array of natural shapes, splatters, and concentric designs. Ken's original 3D artworks are available ranging from sample-size at 4 x 4 inches, to quite large gallery-size at 36 x 24 inches, and everything in between.
With the chroma-depth glasses the color on the flat canvas becomes holographic. Ken calls the level of color projection "a degree" . It refers to the number of different perceptible layers sinking into or floating off the surface of the canvas. We are beginning to rate our painting according to degrees so that the viewer can know that a degree of 7 is more complex with nuanced color values that say a "2".
As refinement of the 3D process -Some of these pieces are named colorscapes because they appear to be luminescent clouds or layers of overlapping holographic like shapes. Our paintings invite the viewer to imagine animals, objects, scenery in the amorphorous clouds of color. There is an inspiring interaction between the viewer and the canvas. Because the layers are perceived somewhat like a topographical map, in multidimesions or layers, there is sustained interest and the canvas is revisited time and time again. These pictures are enjoyable with or without chroma depth glasses but the "WOW" factor with the glasses is a knock your sock off experience.
