McClain Gallery presents "Gisela Colon: Atmospheres," the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. She will be debuting several new free-standing sculptures as well as a selection of her enigmatic Pods - biomorphic, incandescent “non-specific objects” which are in a constant visual flux. The artist will be attending the opening reception.

Colon’s work explores concepts of form, color and surface, while also navigating the more formal and influential aspects of Op-Art, Minimalism, California’s Finish Fetish, and Light and Space movements. The work is striking upon first sight. Its enigmatic beauty gradually reveals itself as the viewer moves around the sculptures and the dimensional effects become apparent. Colon began experimenting with plastics in 2012 and has now perfected the process of blow-molding acrylic. She refines the inner layers which allow her to uniquely imbue her work with seemingly self-generated light. 

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through June 17.
