Large-scale, site-specific 'Color Field Sculpture'

Created by Shelley Parriott for Linden Park - private collection
Indianapolis, Indiana.

Eighteen feet high and twenty-five feet wide, the transparent installation shown below is designed to rise above tall seasonal prairie grass and drifts of wind blown snow that will eventually surround the sculpture.

Monumental in scale and visual impact, yet illusory, sheer columns create an airy appearance not usually associated with outdoor sculpture. Imbued with light, overlapping patterns play in the changing atmosphere.

Thanks to Jason Myers, installation director and photographer in Indianapolis.

Shelley Parriott - Harlem Art Walking Tour NYC 2012

Shelley Parriott is delighted to have been invited by Ultima Gallery to exhibit Color Field Sculpture as part of the Harlem Art Walking Tour 2012.

Diane Eamtrakul, director, had Color Field Sculpture with Yellows installed outside the gallery for this special event in the Mount Morris Historical District, Harlem, NYC.
Indoors, she placed Parriott's "tangible/intangible" transparent Color Field Sculpture/ Warm Hues, beside her own extensive collection of antique Southeast Asian Buddha statues.

Sheer and mysterious Color Field with Blues was tranquil in subtle light.

One wall in the gallery displayed large original drawings by Project Runway designers including Christian Siriano, Austin Scarlett and Carolina Herrera.

Milton Avery's artist's proof was Blue Nude. Works by Ashit Kumar Mitra, Juan Calderon, Arkom Daungchawna and Richard Davis were shown, as well as others.

The rain in NYC didn't dampen the spirits of attendees.

Illusory and Airy in Appearance / Structurally Sound

Though transparent Color Field Sculpture appears to be "airy", illusory and chromatic, industrial materials offer the structural strength and durability to withstand interactions with the public.

Multiple layers of heavy gauge perforated aluminum are rolled, bent or folded by powerful presses as the sculptural concept emerges.

Permanent powder coated color is electrostatically applied to each component.

Versatile metal allows for flexibility in meeting design requirements.

Individual vibrant sheers play in the light to redefine public spaces, landscapes, atriums, cityscapes and private gardens as installations indoors or out, anchored or hanging, are created in any palette, shape or size, bounded only by the specifics of the site.

Magical Transparencies

Created from heavy gauge industrial materials and able to withstand outdoor weather conditions, Color Field Sculpture paradoxically becomes transparent when imbued with light!  Ethereal in appearance, prismatic patterns emerge through overlapping forms.

'Color Field Sculpture with Blues' by Shelley Parriott

       Viewers got into the spirit of the evening! 

Shelley Parriott's ten foot high, Color Field Sculpture with Blues, describes 'the transitory nature of form' as overlapping sheers seem to appear and disappear one behind the other.  Prismatic patterns of color and light are airy and illusory, yet the sculpture is structurally sound.

A large crowd assembled for the opening of "Blue", an exhibition at an expansive new gallery space in Saugerties, NY.
