The first generation New York Abstract Expressionist sculptor Ibram Lassaw created his "projection paintings" in the late 1940s, long before projections became a common form of art. The works are painted on 2 x 2 inch glass slides by dripping or brushing dyes over the surfaces, and at times etching over dyed areas with a needle to make designs. These miniature abstract paintings transform into monumental light images of vibrant color when projected on a wall surface. Lassaw quipped that these may have been the smallest and largest paintings of the Abstract Expressionist era.
