Untitled (White Light Grid Series-V)
On View at the Getty Center: Pacific Standard Time: Crosscurrents in L.A. Painting and Sculpture, 1950-1970
This untitled painting belongs to the series White Light, which Corse created by incorporating tiny spherical particles of glass, similar to those found in highway surfaces, into the white paint. As light is refracted, the painting appears to be softly glowing. The refracted light shifts as the viewer moves, and the interest in the mutable qualities of perception aligns Corse with the immersive installation works of Light and Space art.
