View Works    2016 Slow Light...neon refraction

Lisk by Colleen DaRosa

Lisk  2014

Hahnemuhle paper, acrylic

71cm x 55cm

This series an architecture of slow light has been developed and executed in early 2015. This particular work echoes motifs from the previous works while ushering in a fresh palette.

Architectonic and structural elements create spaces for light to manifest.

Planes and surfaces are used to create a more palpable experience of light.  Images are inspired by Nordic design and architecture. All works are best viewed in their ambient light as effects are more dynamic and complex as one moves across and about the work.

The sculptures are on cut Stonehenge or Hahnemuhle paper (some embossed). The colours that are visible are all a result of reflection and refraction of underpainting. The papers are, in fact, all white.

The glacial finger sculptures are best viewed from a hanging position slightly above the floor or a white platform. More vibrance and colour is generated when underlit by a battery powered LED. The shards sculptures sit on a plinth or other white surface.

Nordic inspired motifs are also used in the framed cut-down paper works.
