LA based artist Darel Carey creates large scale, immersive installations using only tape to push the boundaries of optical art.
Carey plays with positive and negative space through careful placement of each piece of tape. He adjusts the thickness between each line, creating a undulating, wave-like effect a convincing illusion of depth. These tightly built and energetic ripples dramatically change direction, creating a visual vibration. Carey's work inhibits our ability to understand the real structure of his installation sites, altering their shape, size, and proportion drastically with new colliding planes disrupting their surface.
Darel Carey's immersive wall works transform his chosen spaces and demonstrate his ability to flawlessly execute larger than life installation. We imagine viewing one would provoke an incredible and hypnotic sensory overload!
