Vancouver-born, London-schooled, Manhattan-based; Phillip Low is an artist who creates beautiful, simple geometric forms from acrylic which you feel compelled to handle, hold to the light and admire.
Trained as a fashion stylist, and a graduate of the redoubtable St Martin's School of Art, Low pulled together various creative ideas he had been exploring - accessories, plastics, fine art - and started producing these handmade, mesmerising pieces. Working with live perspex and acrylic, he carefully handcrafts the forms so that they glow and radiate different colours when viewed from different angles. These are objects that demand and reward interaction.
Available from Maryam Nassir Zadeh in New York, Low has also produced a series of limited prints of a few of photographer Uday Kak's stiking images of the trapezoids.
