From "Art + Design in Miami":
Two different 2011 works that are less smoke-and-mirrors but equally entrancing are Michael Eastman's "M1" (at Barry Friedman at Art Miami) and Karen Gunderson's "Divergent Sea" (at Waterhouse & Dodd at Scope).
Eastman used simply a wide-angle lens and pushed the depth of field to create this image, which seems like it would have physical depth but is really just a trick of the eye. Gunderson's paintings of water also challenge the eye's understanding of space, but through her detailed brush strokes. Depending on the position of the viewer and the angle of the light refraction, the water seemingly moves like nature intended.
