As a part of his “Corner Shallow Space” series, James Turrell’s Munson, Red uses a light projection to transform the corner of a room into a three-dimensional object. Through his exploration of light and its relationship to sight, Turrell creates mesmerizing experiences of space and presence that I believe need to be experienced in-person.

Suchitra Mattai’s work often combines found objects with vintages saris. While exploring her own history and heritage,  Mattai highlights also the more general struggles that accompany migration from one place and culture to another.

American artist Brian Wilmont’s works are comprised of floral and abstract forms. What I love about this work is a certain optical play in which the flowers could either seem to be distorted on purpose or as a reflection in water. The blues and pastels also have a beautiful, calming effect.

Is painting still relevant in a digital world? That’s what artist Sean Molloy wants viewers to think about when he overlays digitally-manipulated bars of pure color onto landscapes inspired by Baroque art.

This work is part of the joint exhibition at Alisan Fine Arts to celebrate the friendship between two globally renowned 20th-century abstract artists: Walasse Ting and Sam Francis. This work by Ting shows the evocative image of a girl with a flower held in her teeth, with the bright splashes of color emphasizing that flamboyant quality.

Peter Anton’s hyperrealist sculpture presents a decadent yet modestly proportioned box of chocolates that draws in the viewer with its saccharine sheen. The cracked chocolate shells and the traces stuck to the crinkled packaging hint at a soon-to-be-indulged sense of pleasure.
