Toronto and Pittsburgh
Nathan Phillips SquareI produce luminous wall sculptures. I manipulate paint, acrylic, and epoxy to create cohesive artworks. The ability to conduct how light interacts with surfaces is my attempt to create a visual braille: a language by which colour and composition can be felt and not merely observed.
My acrylic sculptures are clear plexiglass objects encased within translucent materials. I embed fluorescent pigments which project through the edges. When light strikes the artwork it appears to change, inviting the viewer to visually travel through the composition.
Recently I've been working with pigmented epoxy resin. Liquid epoxy is poured into molds to form dimensional objects. The series is named after glacial erratics - boulders that trail melting glaciers.
I have completed multiple large-scale installations and commissions for Tiffany & Co., George Brown College, Ryerson University, Norwegian Cruise Line, and the Serrano in New York, among others.
