About

Harald Schmitz-Schmelzer’s cast acrylic works bridge the gap between painting, sculpture and science. The artist’s studio, like an experimental lab, is where he stretches the limits of color perception. Through the use of an acrylic carrier substance, a binding agent and pigments the artist is able to create his uniquely layered objects. Like a painter, Schmitz-Schmelzer began with color in liquid form, but instead of applying it to the surface of a canvas, he instead pours it into a mold. Taking into account opacity, hue and thickness, layer upon layer of acrylic is added until it reaches the desired shape. The outcome is an encyclopedic array of colors that vary depending on ambient light and the angle at which they are seen.
