About Kal Mansur

 

Kal Mansur is a visual artist specializing in acrylic glass construction. The optically shifting hues and dimensionality of his work represent a hybrid between painting and sculpture. Shrouded components offer blurred internal views, providing hints of an encased object.

Mansur works with solid acrylic sheets of varying colors and thicknesses. These materials are sawn and shaped into a sculptural object. The object is adhered to an acrylic glass case and capped by translucent acrylic. This diffuses the internal sculpture, enabling light to reflect and refract. While analogous to light and space movements, and while recalling the pristine minimalism of Donald Judd’s constructions, Mansur’s work is unique in its use of diffusion and concealment as compositional elements.
