Sheets of mylar, acrylic luminous paint, wire, monofilament and glue spanning approximately 400 square feet
Sharon Louden’s Blue Willow (2006), handcrafted out of paper, filament, and hardware, blurs the boundaries between painting and sculpture. These pieces are scaled to the human body and react dramatically when exposed to light. In Blue Willow, each sheet of translucent Mylar is also a canvas of unique gestural strokes of iridescent paint. When the timer plunges Blue Willow into complete darkness, both work and space are thoroughly transformed. This abstract composition seems to change over and over again as the light goes on and off, leaving the viewer with ephemeral traces of form.
