Peter Bynum Paints on Layered Glass to Create Scenes From the Natural World

NEW YORK—Layers of tempered glass and light give dimension to Peter Bynum‘s organic images. Capturing the natural world, most of his paintings look like they are underwater scenes featuring coral, seaweed and tentacled creatures. But Bynum depicts a range of natural elements—including leaves and trees—bringing them to life by painting on several sheets of glass and then layering them to create the final image. The artist exhibited his work over the weekend at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show.
