In the still composition REAS-StN-GXL-0000028200-4096px.png, elements merge to create a texture with no foreground or background. The composition offers a perfect balance amongst fuchsia, blues and greens. Features indicate a form of movement, yet their shapes remain indiscernible. This wholeness most possibly results from Casey Reas process of layering. At each step of the creation, elements of the image follow different behaviours, which modifies their relationship with other pictorial plane components. The mesmerising visual is only the surface of a work that withholds many layers of code as an immaterial form of beauty. In the end, Casey Reas’ art combines visual and algorithmic delight.
