    CHROMA

    Phillip Low & Melanie Katsalidis
    December 01 – 21, 2016

    Pieces of Eight is excited to present CHROMA, an exhibition of  dynamic sculptures by New York artist Phillip Low and Australian jeweller Melanie Katsalidis. CHROMA marks the first-ever comprehensive showcase of Low’s work in Australia, and saw Katsalidis work closely with Low to draw parallels between his light-filled prismatic forms and the custom cut gemstones which feature in her jewellery.

    For this unique collaboration, Katsalidis travelled extensively to hand-source an exquisite selection of gemstones and rough material to cut, including sapphires and zircon from Queensland. She sought bi-coloured gems to complement Low’s sculptures, which take the viewer through a diaphanous transition of hues.

    Low’s distinctive sculptures display the imaginative potential of acrylic plastic, which he uses for its precision, density and optical qualities. Harnessing the refraction of light through angular geometry, Low creates a sense of energy and dynamism within his translucent sculptures.
