This looks like a reverse glass painting. Very cool.

Michael Yurick’s "Shadowplay First" is a lovely abstract work on paper that blends the lines between two-dimensional artwork and sculpture. Like sculpture, the work is composed of individual elements fused in a united whole (well, not technically, but you get my point). Each form is a world of its own and does not attempt to mimic its neighbor. Their association is not forced or unharmonious, but there is very little common ground between them. The forms harken back to various painters and artistic movements throughout history. In the center of the work’s left-hand side, a Piet Mondrian checkered square is sandwiched between a Joan Mitchell-like gestural circle on top and an authoritative, thick-lined Mark Rothko-inspired square on the bottom. A red and orange shape that brings to mind the organic forms of Jean Arp crowns the top of the work.

 A whole lotta art history in one work!
