The style of this glass work is Modern Abstract Impressionism
Letter From Arles wa created as three layers: the front surface of the glass panel on top; the back of the top panel; the front of the bottom panel.This layering process produces the illusion of depth within the finished panel. The images reference Vincent's famed Yellow House (where he lived in Arles during this period), Sunflowers (a favorite subject of his Arles paintings), the garden at the asylum in Arles (where he was treated intermittently for his mental health issues), and impastos slashes of his favorite colors, blue and yellow (employing the painting process of impasto, using palette knives with thickened glass powders.)
Vincent's letter to Theo, where he discusses his plans to paint his bedroom (and includes his sketch) is reproduced by creating a custom stencil and black glass powder on fiber paper. The "letter" is fused between the two glass panes.The glass panel is elevated above a custom aluminum presentation panel.
