  • Kal Mansur

    Kal Mansur

    Detailed Description :
    Kal Mansur's work is characterized by acrylic pieces of varying colors and thicknesses contained within a diffused acrylic case. The play of light becomes apparent when one focuses on the edges, which cast colored shadows, depending on the spatial relationships within the composition. This kinetic quality is foundational to Mansur's work, creating a hybrid between gestural abstraction and the pristine constructions found in minimalism. Also represented by:

  • Courtlandt Swartz

    Courtlandt Swartz

    Detailed Description :
    Courtlandt Swartz suspends sculptural forms of acrylic paint within prisms of hand cast acrylic glass. Selectively affecting the surface clarity allows internal elements to be concealed and revealed. There is no single or immediate way to experience the piece. Every angle exposes a different refraction of the brushstrokes contained in the sculpture. Having a longstanding background in realist painting has inspired Swartz to move into three-dimensional space, searching for a medium that provides multiple images simultaneously.
