Thomas Quinn has created a few pieces of ‘anamorphic typography’ he says ‘Essentially, it is an illusion where the type looks just right when viewed from the exact right spot, but it looks stretched and warped when viewed from elsewhere in the room.’ 
His pieces often say something about viewing. This one stating ‘face reality as it is’ at this angle but from another angle it looks skewed. I think that this suggests that things may not always be what they appear to be. ‘irony prevails: you can never truly know what how reality is defined. What seems perfectly clear at one point, can be shattered the next’ 
I think that the messages in his work link very closely to the way it is made/looked at. These two pieces show messages of ‘perspective’ and points of view which reflects the work as the viewer has to look at it from a certain angle for the words to be fully formed.
The optical illusion of the image is what I find most interesting about these pieces as when I first saw one of them I thought it was just a photograph with some typography layered over the top so it was intriguing to learn that it was actually painted onto the wall.
