I am sharing this piece because I painted the moth 2 years ago. It sat on my (self proclaimed) "wall of failures", incomplete this whole time until I decided to add the Penrose triangle. I have been captivated by impossible shapes ever since I studied Gerhard Richter's Impossible Object series at the Art Institute of Chicago almost 10 years ago. I am happy to be exploring this subject in my own work.
