Sérgio Sister is best known for the found wooden beams he arranges into sculptural paintings that resemble crates, porticos, or window frames. Sister paints the beams various colors, dresses them in canvas, and assembles them into configurations that allow for various depths, shadows, and experiences of color to emerge. “My objective was to allow space and air to operate with, and in, the relationship between the colors,” he says. Sister’s practice pulls Color Field painting into three-dimensions and re-contextualizes classical ideas about the canvas as a window.
