With Just A Wooden Block And A Few Buckets Of Paint, This Awesomeness Was Created

What do you get when you continue to pour paint onto something? If you answered “a mess,” you”re only partially right. If you”re artist Holton Rower, you might see something else in the ever-expanding puddle of paint, especially if you approach it like this.

The team of artists seen here took ordinary plywood, boxes, and a lot of acrylic paint to create swirling, psychedelic art pieces that are half painting, half sculpture, and all awesome.

After the boards and boxes are put into place, the paint is poured…

…and keeps getting poured!

The paintings” creations are hypnotizing, with each band of color growing and twisting into a new shape, like planetary rings or biological structures. Plus, it looks like a lot of fun to make!

When the paint is dry, the whole apparatus of wooden boxes and boards is lifted up from the floor and mounted on the wall for viewers to see their (almost) symmetrical forms.

This just goes to show you the kind of beauty you can create with a relatively simple process–provided you aren”t afraid of making a bit of a mess! You can also check out some of Rower”s other projects, including more paintings and sculptures, on their website.
