This body of work combines the traditions of sculpture and painting. Mansur uses solid acrylic elements with painted fields and objects to elicit a response between mystery and recognition. The built and painted sculpture is then covered with a translucent panel that visually alters the internal elements. Aspects of the work glow as soon as the piece receives light, be it in the form of natural of artificial light.
SENTINELS AND GLITCHES
The work is unique in how pigment and substrate are fused into a singular object. Carved topographies become visible upon closer inspection, revealing translucent elements that cast hued shadows on the wall.
