Rashad Alakbarov’s Light Artworks


Azerbaijani artist Rashad Alakbarov’s recent exhibition at art auction house Phillips de Pury’s London space included a projected image created using transparent coloured plastic objects and a light source.

Alakbarov’s practice often involves using found objects as a source of inspiration for colour and shape, combining items and lighting them in such a way as to project an image onto the gallery wall.

Choosing to work with brightly coloured acrylic, this process indicates a growing interest in experimental methods of simulating colour that immerse spaces in light.
