"Coalescence" is a captivating triptych that is a result of the fusion of vision and craftsmanship. It was created in collaboration with Aaron Harel and takes the viewers on a journey of transformation and interaction.

The piece comprises three panels made from upcycled drum shells that have been meticulously cut and framed by Aaron Harel. The right and left panels have matching dimensions of 51" (L) x 8" (W), while the central panel is slightly narrower at 51" (L) x 5" (W). The panels are arranged in a rhythmic pattern that draws the viewer's eye across the artwork.

To create a sense of depth and dimensionality, I applied a subtle and dark grayscale gradient to each drum shell. The center panel is cloaked in the deepest black, while the outer panels transition through a darker grayscale spectrum.

"Coalescence" is a truly magical piece of art that features a dynamic interplay of colors. Each drum shell has been carefully adorned with a stripe of color-shift paint that seamlessly transitions from green to blue to purple as the viewer's perspective shifts. This chromatic transformation brings the artwork to life, making it ever-changing and vibrant, dancing with the ambient light.

As light caresses the rounded surfaces of the drum shells, the color-shift sections come alive, revealing a kaleidoscope of hues that shift and shimmer with each movement. The result is an immersive experience that transcends the boundaries of traditional art, inviting viewers to become active participants in the unfolding narrative of this piece.

Aaron Harel and I have created more than just a painting; we have crafted an immersive journey of transformation and discovery where artistry and innovation converge in perfect harmony.
