Gisela Colón: Quantum Shift
On view through May 30, 2021
Tephra Institute of Contemporary Art (Tephra ICA)

Tephra Institute of Contemporary Art (Tephra ICA) presents Quantum Shift featuring work by light and space artist Gisela Colón. This is the first solo exhibition of the artist’s work in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan region

Gisela Colón (b. 1966) introduces mutable, transformational qualities in her practice using a unique sculptural language of Organic Minimalism. Colón produces objects that are seamless, featuring little to no edges, lines, or place for the viewer to rest their eye, nodding towards an energy of constant fluctuation and growth. Made from carbon fiber material using advanced aerospace technology, the “Pods,”“Monoliths,” and “Elliptoids,” are light weight yet durable objects, both from this earth and not of this earth, birthed from a symbiosis of high art and high science.
