Phillip Low: Acrylic Colour

Extra

Using coloured acrylic polished to varying degrees, New York-based artist Phillip Low creates sculptures that adopt the aesthetic of prisms and prismatic colour separation.

By milling the acrylic objects, Low creates a rough surface on some faces of his pieces, leaving others highly polished. This causes light to be transmitted and reflected differently depending on each surface’s finish, making the acrylic colours appear blurred in some places and sharply defined in others.

For more examples of prism-based artworks, see the Stylus report Prismatic Colour.
