Description

Untitled
lucite
58 1/4" x 11 1/8" x 3 1/2"
Vasa Mihich creates his optically complex sculptures by laminating clear industrially-made acrylic sheets between thinner colored acrylic sheets. Once polished, the geometric forms can appear to be made of solid transparent colors even though they may be up to 90% clear. Comprehending the construction can be difficult, since areas may appear transparent when in fact they are showing a reflection.
