Impossible Objects
@ Self-Initiated
Art + Design
An impossible object is a two-dimensional figure which is instantly and subconsciously interpreted as representing a three-dimensional object. The  show Impossible Objects creates this implied dimension on flat planes and explores a reality where these impossible two-dimensional figures exist in three-dimensions.

Originally scheduled to be shown at One Grand Gallery in Portland Oregon, exhibition of Impossible Objects has been postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19. For artworks availability and pricing inquiries, please get in touch: hnoddings@gmail.com.
