Jason de Graaf’s new acrylic painting titled “Parallel Lines That Never Meet” (shown above), definitely reminds me of Escher’s lithograph, “Hand with Reflecting Sphere.” Many of Graaf’s art pieces have a common characteristic of including reflective objects like Baoding balls, marbles, wine glasses and light bulbs. Each item displaying a room or an outdoor scene on its surface, which adds depth to the composition.
