“Radiant Space” Illuminates Houston with Flashes of the West Coast’s Light and Space Movement
Gisela Colón, who was born in Canada and raised in Puerto Rico, has been associated with West Coast Minimalism and Light & Space artists like Peter Alexander and DeWain Valentine, focusing her practice on brightly colored, blow-molded plastic sculptures. These “Glo-Pods” feature irregular, curvaceous contours, referencing biomorphic forms like larvae, amoebas, and other living organisms, and everything from the human body to the visual language of advertising.
