The amplitude of a wave refers to the maximum amount of displacement of a particle on the medium from its rest position. In a sense, the amplitude is the distance from rest to crest.
In this piece, Kean depicts an unbroken wave in a somewhat Abstract manner. He strives for clean lines and stark contrast giving the viewer a sense of stillness yet movement in an elegant way. It’s this dichotomy that Kean has been exploring in his work for the past seven years.
