Trompe L’oeille Pantry, M. Gilbertsen 2003

Commissioned work for a client who wanted to disguise her sliding pantry doors.  Tricky work with the two doors not being completely flat but instead one in front of the other.  The deal with trompe l’oeille is that it literally translates “fool the eye” – it’s point is that it IS a little optical joke and that it succeeds if the eye is fooled just for a moment and then does realize it is just a painting.
