A three dimensional realisation of Camila Quintero's experiments with geometry and the perception of colour. 

This sculpture comes from a series entitled, The Life of a Day, in which a compilation of works traces the course of a day, and the effects of changing light conditions. In the artist's word, "It is a narration of the stages of a day, not just a single day but time fragmented on what could be any day." The transparent nature of the acrylic forms and the construction of individual pieces offers multiple colour possibilities. 

Camila's "optical distortions" span art, architecture, photography and design. "Deconstruction and optical distortion are recurrent throughout my work and refer to the response of the perceptual connection we have with our surroundings and the impact that they have on us."

A recent graduated of Camberwell College of Arts, Camila has already created a unique way to work with abstract geometry by using both fluid and controlled automatism. 

Camila Quintero has an MA in Visual Arts: Illustration from Camberwell College of Arts. She is currently exhibiting a series of work at Selfridges as part of the collaboration project A Technicolor Odyssey. In 2018, her work was selected for the permanent collection of the University of the Arts London. Camila's work was exhibited at Flock Graduates Show at GX Gallery, the ARTIQ Graduates Show and Not Just a Shop at UAL. 

This work is sold with a certificate of authenticity from the artist.

Camila Quintero is also showing The Faces of Colour in The Crossover.
