Metal suitcase, acrylic, second-hand clothing, wood & steel
The outline of a male figure is carved through the lid of a vintage metal suitcase. The case is then painted with matte black paint inside and out.
The contrast between pure darkness and spectral black is subtle but with the help of a naturally occurring optical effect, we are able to discern the figure.
