Chasing the ephemeral
Artist David Serisier studied the images from James Turrell’s 2013 Guggenheim installation, and observed minute changes in colour and light to create a collection of paintings focused on re-formation and an attempt to capture the ephemeral. We look at the artist’s latest works for his upcoming exhibition – Gallium Sky.
