The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) will present “Gisela Colón’s: PODS” by the Los Angeles-based abstract artist from April 14th to August 7th. This exciting exhibition features over a dozen sculptures made from blow-molded acrylic plastic and iridescent and fluorescent pigments which allow the viewer to experience pure color and form in space.
Starting from a sketch, Colón determines form, color and other qualities in a highly deliberate process. Each piece is fabricated by an industrial manufacturer in several steps in order to ensure that it comes out exactly as originally envisioned.
Light and color is then embedded into the piece through a proprietary process. Her work is considered a “synthesis of two diverse and distinct influences: Latin American modern abstract art and North American aesthetics that are seminal to the West Coast region.”
