New York artist Owen Falco Drysdale brings paint into the third dimension with his sculptural gradients. Each piece has a personality and when grouped together their slight differences create striking contrast for viewers.
Each of Drysdale's sculptures appears to be a cross-sectional slice of colour, either a piece of white cut open to reveal gorgeous blends of colour or a vibrant hue split to reveal a clean, white center. The shapes are sharp yet soft, cut with perfectly symmetrical precision for flawlessly rounded corners. These sculptural colour studies allow their gradients to play with their structural appearance by conveying weight, shadow, and highlight. These effects create illusions that conflict with the three dimensional reality of the objects. The series of work as a whole offers a new perspective on the potential of primary colours.
Owen Falco Drysdale's work is an example of how a seemingly simple concept results in a captivating object. We would love to see this work in person to fully experience it's playful presence in a gallery setting.
