Gisela Colon and DeWain Valentine at ACE Gallery 2014 with Dome Melt Glo-Pod (Black), 2013


In her Glo-Pods, Gisela Colon has fused Op Art, Light & Space art, Pop art, and global art world trends in a dazzling synthesis of elegant, contemporary beauty. Though undoubtedly influenced by the Light & Space and Finish/Fetish art of Southern California Minimalists of the 60s and 70s, including artists such as James Turrell, DeWain Valentine, Larry Bell and Helen Pashgian, Colon has reset the terms of the discourse on an organic ground, rooted in concepts of feminism and globalism.
