PHILIP DOW
CAST ACRYLIC SCULPTURE


Transparency in three-dimensional form places a unique demand on a sculptor. The linear qualities and all their relationships are fully exposed, as is the mass or volume.  The play of light within a form emphasizes line, defines or masks the mass, establishes focal points, and reveals interior surface qualities that are usually only suggested.  Cast acrylic provides the opportunity to explore transparency and optics in a sculptural sense in a studio environment.  The sculpture below is a selection from the past thirty-five years.
