Cosmic Encounter by Nicholas Yust is a stunning hand-crafted and hand-painted metal wall sculpture with an interacting pair of swirling grind pattern etched into the surface of the metal, creating a spectacular dimensional effect that really draws the viewer in. The burnt red, orange, violet and blue hues with the dark edges and glossy clear coat come together for a fascinating display, truly creating the 'Wow Factor' conversation piece on your wall. A holographic effect is created when light passes through the layers of color and reflects off of the curving grooves of the grind pattern. This piece makes a gorgeous urban contemporary artwork with a bold statement, incorporating a myriad of hand-mixed colors with a black acrylic vignette, thinner and reactive treatments, industrial style finishing techniques and a glossy clear coat.
Cosmic Encounter is in Nicholas's Black Label collection, which is a line of high-end contemporary artworks that are crafted using very expressionistic grind patterns along with fluid, organic coloring. He uses both heat and checmical reaction techniques and glossy, even sparkling finishes. The result is a stunning masterpiece of interacting patterns and colors that are impossible to replicate, meaning every piece is an entirely unique, gallery-quality original. Custom commissions with generally similar colors and patterns can be created upon request.
