In the exhibition, four newly created Glass works will be installed each with their own scale, shape and experience of color. This series was developed from his first Glass works begun in 2006, which were significant in their introduction of a deliberately temporal element. Each Glass is a unique composition, in which hundreds of vivid combinations of colors seep into and against each other as they slowly shift over time. This wall-cavity filled with color advances the lineage of abstract art, particularly calling to mind Mark Rothko’s Color Field paintings or Ad Reinhardt’s black paintings, which for Turrell “brought color out of darkness.” In implicating the viewer in the temporal experience of color within the physical and perceptual experience, Turrell turns light into a powerful substance.
