Angela Bulloch explains her work Heavy Metal Stack: Fat Cyan Three (2018), a sculpture commissioned in celebration of The Phillips Collection centennial in 2021.
The work of Angela Bulloch (b. 1966, Rainy River, Canada) spans many media, from painting and sculpture to video and sound installations. In her most recent body of work, Stacks, each vertical structure of three to six stacked rhomboids offers a distinct rhythm created by variations in shape, size, and color. The powder coated steel surfaces are painted in a combination of light and dark colors, creating the optical illusion of pushing and pulling planes. Designed within a digital imaging program, each stacked rhombus appears distinct while at the same time relating to the others.
