Pasadena Public Art


 

The City of Pasadena Public Art Program was established in the late 1980's to aesthetically enhance both new private development and City construction projects.  Since then, many local and national artists have contributed to the City's public art collection. In addition, various arts and cultural organizations have initiated a variety of temporary and permanent public art projects. Search below to learn more about Pasadena's Public Art.

ABELES, KIM 180 N FAIR OAKS AVE
Description:  Sculptures of laser-cut steel fig leaves with porcelain enamel finish and changeable lightboxes. Along Pacific Alley oversized fig leaves climb the rear exterior walls of the Armory Center for the Arts and the nearby Marriot Hotel. These laser-cut, steel fig leaves reference the rich vines covering other local buildings and the Mission days of Pasadena when figs and other fruit were introduced to the area. These sculptures incorporate multiple aspects of art history with images representing current exhibitions and contemporary cultural events as well as scenes celebrating the artwork and cultural activities from historical Pasadena. The artist presents these artworks in two leaf forms: either porcelain enamel on metal disks or lightbox illuminated changeable photographic transparencies. A third leaf design contains the legend for all of the displayed artwork, including artist names and titles.

ADRIAN, JANE 275 S RAYMOND AVE
Description:  Artist team Jane MacDonald Adrian and Antje Hammer collaborated to design this play environment that explores elements of the natural Pasadena landscape and the city's history. The artists' goal was to capture children's imaginations through the textures, shapes and colors that appear throughout the landscaped play area which echoes the shape of Pasadena's Arroyo Seco. Central Park Play Environment is composed of four main elements, each representing a different aspect of Pasadena: the play equipment, a maze-like path, Rose Bowl inspired sand area, and the ceramic tile art benches. A bright red fire engine, a piece of play equipment, reflects the fire station across the street. Colorful geometric shapes decorate the maze representing different elements of the environment, such as the Earth, sky and water. Each with its own theme, the ceramic tiles on the serpentine benches offer a narrative about Pasadena through representation of the past, the sciences, the arts, nature and places in the city. These tiles, along with the symbols incorporated into the play environment, serve an educational purpose to park visitors.

Description:  Michael Amescua's work takes the form of five gates and two transoms. The sturdy hand cut gates are light and airy with their graceful designs, which signify the flora and fauna of the region and the "romantic Mediterranean" feeling of the project. These gates pay homage to Pasadena's location and history reflecting the artist's inspiration derived from the arts and crafts movement. Amescua aimed for dramatic harmony when crafting the guardrails, gates and signage for Paseo Colorado, which gives the project its romantic feel.

BATCHELDER, ERNEST 130 S EUCLID AVE
Description:  Deceitfully titled, Tile Fireplace appears as a water fountain set into a stucco wall accented with antique tiles and surrounded by a series of intricate tile wall murals. A composition of subtle earth tones, the tiles comprising the main fountain element were gathered and pieced together from the remains of a demolished home donated to the Plaza Las Fuentes by the Pasadena Heritage Society. The combination of antique fountain façade and modern tile murals depicting larger-than-life roses on colorfully abstract backgrounds captures the personality of Pasadena. Rose motifs and the central fountain reference the history of a culturally diverse and artistically inspired city presented in the abstract network of decorated tiles.

BATCHELDER, ERNEST 142 N RAYMOND AVE
Description:  A thirsty park visitor can find refreshment at one of four water fountains located throughout Pasadena's Memorial Park. The fountains feature soft yellow square tiles decorated with a green, blue and brown rosette design. Smaller, solid color tiles in blue, lavender and green create a border along the top and bottom edges of the brick fountains. The tile work adorning the sides of the fountains' base represents the creative talent of tile artist, Ernest A. Batchelder. A leading designer of the American Arts and Crafts movement, Batchelder settled in Pasadena where he founded his own tile making company. Two Batchelder tile fountains, dedicated in 1932 by the Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War to American War Mothers

Representing man's intervention in nature, the colorful sculpture and its placement in an urban setting symbolize the human drive to influence nature. The Pasadena siting of Topiaries inspired the transformation of a formerly unused parcel of land into a beautiful and self-sustaining rain garden.

CAMPBELL, DOUG 207 N GARFIELD AVE
Description:  The artists, Robert Irwin and Douglas Campbell, collaborated to create an open space that connects the public with the natural world. Within the sunken courtyard, three elements offer a narrative about the natural Pasadena landscape and its public spaces: a tree, a fountain and a decorated column. A massive California Sycamore (Platanus racemosa), which traditionally signals the presence of water and habitation in the dry southern California, grows next to the head of a fountain. The fountain, which begins as a softly upwelling source springing from the roots of the sycamore, recognizes the importance and preciousness of water to life. Water glides down a narrow channel to the base of the Sentinel column where it disappears into the gravel floor. The Sentinel, the third ceremonial object in the Courtyard, rises as a column carrying the blue light recognizing the police department, the guardians of the City. The Sentinel column is a symbol of the safe haven Pasadena residents call home. Such a sign of police protection and assistance reinforce the presence of the Police Department facing The Pasadena Way. The combination of the tree and water elements and the symbolic blue hue of the Sentinel's beam embody the expression of civic values within the Pasadena community.

CHAMBERLIN, FRANK TOLLES 325 S OAK KNOLL AVE
Description:  In 1934, the U.S. Treasury Department collaborated with the Board of Education and the Works Progress Administration's (WPA) Arts Project to commission a mural within Pasadena's McKinley School library. Artist Frank Tolles Chamberlain was chosen to design the mural under the theme of education. During the mural's execution, Chamberlin invited several students from McKinley to pose as the foreground subjects of the mural. These students appear participating in educational activities in front of a background depicting the Southern California landscape through images of Eaton Canyon and the Arroyo Seco. Chamberlin incorporated a line of verse from Anna Trumbull Waller's poem, Song of Youth, which compliments the mural's theme and the artist's passion for education: "All heritage of the past is mine, to be moulded by my spirit into forms new and fair."

CHANGING OVER TIME, VARIOUS ARTISTS 733 N FAIR OAKS AVE
Description:  Roadside Attraction is a temporary outdoor gallery on a vacant City-owned lot in NW Pasadena that was organized by the Armory Center for the Arts. The installation will be sited at 733 North Fair Oaks Boulevard. Located on a traffic-heavy, vehicular corridor, Roadside Attraction would consist of a set of three vinyl 5' x 12' panels mounted on a wooden support structure with concrete and metal footings, in the configuration of the letter "z." Each screen consists of a vinyl reproduction of a photograph or painting adhered to the framework with grommets, containing image only. The structure will feature three rotating exhibitions, each composed of three distinct artworks and would be installed for approximately 10 - 14 week durations. Because of its shape, size, and placement (set back ten feet from the sidewalk), Roadside Attraction will be visible to commuters and pedestrians moving north and south along North Fair Oaks. The images of each installation will be selected by the Armory's curatorial staff. Artwork selections will be made based on their visual and conceptual cohesiveness and their thematic connection with concurrent exhibitions in Armory's Caldwell Gallery. The intention of the artwork is to build a relationship between the passers-by and the installation, triggering viewers to find personal resonance with the images. The first installation contains artwork from Whitney Bedford, Katie Shapiro and Emilie Halpern.

DIEHNELT, FRANKA 840 E GREEN ST
Description:  The artist team MERGE created Passerby, a series of photographs of different people walking and standing- as seen from above, which cover the bottom side of the four glass canopies. MERGE collaborated with Pasadena's Armory Center for the Arts who organized a community photo shoot for the project. The images of these "passersby" create a hypothetical urban population, as might be found on such a busy intersection as Green and Lake. This installation refers to the fact that living in a city we constantly pass each other, often without acknowledging each other's presence. MERGE constructed the "shadow" of each depicted "passerby", as if each person that is shown on the canopies above was standing in exactly this position on the sidewalk right underneath it. The resulting fake "shadows" were traced and permanently captured by embedding the shadow shapes in the sidewalk using a slightly darker shade of concrete.

The artist designed each steel wrap with a unique design referencing the brightly-colored diamond shapes of the Harlequin character often found in theater. While these diamond cut-outs represent the comedic character's brightly-adorned costume and mask, the vertical edges of the exterior octagonal cylinder surrounding the light pole symbolize the drape-like movement of the stage curtain. Solar powered lighting illuminates the colorful wraps and beams of light shine through the diamond shapes, adding a glowing element to the Playhouse District at night. Not too long ago, the 100' mirror in the Mt. Wilson telescope was the largest in the world. The universe was more accurately defined by such resident astronomers and cosmologists as Edwin Hubble and Albert Einstein.

HELMICK, RALPH 95 N GARFIELD AVE
Description:  The City of Pasadena has memorialized Jackie and Mack Robinson in two monumental bronze portrait heads sited across from City Hall in Pasadena. The sculptures reflect the city's appreciation for the brother's contributions beyond the athletic sphere as role models for African Americans and others in their ability to overcome racial barriers and offer hope under the contemporary social climate. The brothers' accomplishments can be traced to their youth in Pasadena and beyond through Mack's competition in the 1936 Berlin Olympics and Jackie's years with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Following his athletic accomplishments, Mack made Pasadena his permanent home where he led the fight against street crime. After two years serving in the U.S. army, Jackie was honorably discharged from his service having refused to give in to racial discrimination within the service. The sculptures function as likenesses of the two athletes and also offer a visual narrative of their accomplishments in politics, community service and sports. The artist team designed the sculptures, incorporating bas relief imagery into the surface of the hair. Images of the two figures in action recede into the surface between the left and right ears of both sculpted heads. Within Mack's hair, outlines of runners appear in action captured in the bronze surface next to quotes from the life of the 1936 Olympic Silver medalist. To Mack's right, outlines of an athlete appear above the letters "UCLA," signifying Jackie's college years and the four sports in which he competed, leading up to his years in major league baseball. These representations of the two brothers symbolize not only their contributions to American sports but their perseverance in breaking racial barriers, offering hope and inspiration to future generations.

HOUGHTON, BRADY 215 S MARENGO AVE
Description:  Tile mural design for Cinema Lofts. Countdown Leader refers to the visual second-by-second countdown that was used to cue the beginning of film segments for playback. The artist chose to display the numbers "217" to represent the building's street address. Keeping with the cinematic theme, the mural appears cropped, suggesting the subtle transition of images that appear in film. By using a multitude of images, the artist was able to convey a pixilated look that would otherwise appear in modern digital film. The mural's color scheme in black, white and grays reinforces the modernist style of the building's architecture while referencing the days of black and white cinema.

The modern design of the canopy references CalTech and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and gives the art project a futuristic look. The dichroic glass running behind the fluted glass give the doors a kinetic quality by creating reflective and transmissive light effects simultaneously, depending on the angle of viewing and the light source. The key component, the entrance canopy to the office building has various dichroic glass elements embedded within it, offering an ever changing play of colors in the artwork, as well as reflecting onto the sidewalk as the sun passes during the day, while creative lighting will illuminate the artwork for a nighttime presence.

KARLSEN, ANNE MARIE 125 N RAYMOND AVE
Description:  Stone and glass mosaic mural. The artist photographed the interior and exterior of the Raymond Theatre extensively and from these photos created a composition that loosely references the historic urns on the façade.

LANDAU, SUSAN 712 E WALNUT ST
Description:  "Holey Gates" has two references. One is literal in that the Gates are made of perforated steel. The artist, Susan Landau has an interest in the ways that steel can be made to be transparent and yet retain its strength as a material. For this project, the artist was able to achieve the effect of transparency but also arious patterns of transparencies created by differences in hole sizes and shapes. These differences are subtle and almost dainty which is not what is expected of steel and encountered close up by viewers/visitors to the building. The second less serious reference the artist makes is to the heavenly or "pearly gates" using a play on words of "holy' to "holey".

Description:  3 components to this sculpture (1) Stacked Element: An abstract form composed of layers of plate aluminum rings rises above the two other elements of this installation. The rotund shape and soaring height of the silver-hued sculpture make it the dominant piece within the courtyard. With its uneven surface, Stacked Element offers a tactile experience for curious pedestrians seeking to interact with the sculptures. (2) Sphere: Deep blue sphere sculpture; the second element within his Untitled Three project. Star patterns adorn the smooth steel surface of the Sphere sculpture, representing the southern California night skies. This element of the installation captures the artist's goal of representing abstractions of the world and space through a variety of symbols. While the dark blue hue of the orb reflects the darkness of the night sky, its shape references local explorations of space at Caltech. (3) Icosahedron: One of three sculptures that appear within the outside courtyard of the Condominium Project. The first of these three sculptures, Icosahedron, a geometric bronze cast object with a jewel-like quality glows from its green patina. The artist chose bronze with the anticipation that the surface of the crystal-like form would transform to become more jewel-like from natural exposure and the burnishing effect of people rubbing the bronze surface.

MCMILLEN, MICHAEL 95 FILLMORE ST
Description:  A 40-foot spire of telescoping steel and bronze ascends into the sky and announces the entry to this station. Capped at its pinnacle with a gleaming gold baseball, the tower is comprised of kinetic elements including an anemometer for measuring wind force, and a weather vane depicting a miniature Bell X-1 rocket plane balanced by a Cadillac tail fin. The Bell X-1 rocket, piloted by Chuck Yeager, was the first aircraft to break the sound barrier in 1947. These elements make apt reference to the California Institute of Technology, Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Art Center College of Design, all located in the Pasadena area. A bronze collar clads the bottom 10-feet of the tower, and contains a wealth of interesting and engaging designs, textures, and artifacts relating to both geological time and the history of Pasadena. Complex sculptural images including book spines, hot metal letterpress type, doorbells, locks, metal cars and train tracks, keys, pencils and paintbrushes, miniature doors, and miscellaneous small hardware fittings represent a conceptual stratum of history, knowledge, and subtext, and pay tribute as well to the fields of art and science. Prominently appearing on the tower collar is the number 42, which commuters and sports fans alike will recognize in conjunction with the gold baseball as references to Jackie Robinson, a long-time Pasadena resident and the first African American to break the "color line" in professional baseball.

NIEMI, RIES 198 S RAYMOND AVE
Description:  Artist Ries Niemi has created 550 linear feet of hand-wrought fencing for this station. Influenced by the historical Art Deco buildings of Pasadena, the Craftsman Style detail of architects Greene & Greene, and the beauty of machines and trains from the Industrial Revolution, Niemi designed and fabricated stylized discs, axles, arcs, pistons, turntables, and rails to provide a rich visual vocabulary in stainless steel and bronze. Commissioned by Urban Partners LLC, and in keeping with the City of Pasadena's public art policy, the artist has also created four 6-foot in diameter medallions that crown the top of the plaza elevator tower. The medallions are made from forged bronze, and contain customized lighting elements. Four stainless steel panels at the base of the tower enclose the stairwells to the parking garage below, and suggest fragments of large mysterious machines. The project reflects a contemporary interpretation of the nostalgic design elements that made streamliners and early passenger trains popular and created a culture of sophisticated and elegant travel. "In this work I have created an 'alphabet' of components and shapes, which I have then combined into many different 'sentences.' The work was largely created through an improvised process, almost like playing jazz, where each segment was tried in a variety of ways before the right one suggested itself. In the end, the piece is a lyrical and rhythmic narrative about the glory and mystery of machines." http://www.metro.net/about_us/metroart/ma_mrglddrn.htm

POLLACK, LINDA 40 S OAKLAND AVE
Description:  The artist team of Linda Pollack, Claudia Reisenberger and Christina Ulke collaborated to capture Pasadena's historic mansions within the interior of a local parking garage through their art project, Madison Mansion. The artists worked with two structural elements to recreate the public space under the mansion ideal. Using decorative motifs like those found in old Pasadena mansions, the artists adorned the walls of the seven levels of the garage ramps. Playing with modern materials, the team placed multi-colored reflectors in intricate patterns upon the walls that become intensified from the headlights of cars passing through the garage. The second element of Madison Mansion appears in one location, instead of multiple levels like the wall designs. While waiting in the main elevator lobby on ground floor, the viewer can watch a video installation that mimics a surveillance monitor. The monitor depicts images of the parking structure with scenes interspersed from "When Kings Were the Law," the 1912 Griffith film depicting a costume party shot in the Fenyes mansion, as well as filmed sequences of interior and exterior spaces of Pasadena mansions. These creative elements offer an experience beyond the parking garage's utilitarian function, while offering visitors a glance at Pasadena's architectural history.

Thinking has been expressed not only through the meditative attitude of the body, but through the effort of every muscle.

Upon the panels appears a description about the history of the Friend building, along with images of other Pasadena modernist buildings. The artist's chosen structures include: the original Friend building, the Beckman Auditorium at Cal Tech and the Ambassador College of Fine Art and Science building. Since the back of the sculpture will be only partially visible to passersby, the artist incorporated an elaborate modernist decorative motif, made up of colorful steel panels in myriad shapes.

In the summer of 2004, "Kenny Scharf: California Grown" opened at PMCA as the museum's first tri-level exhibition, with paintings installed and a video screening of Scharf's animated show The Groovenians on the second floor, his bronze sculptures in the third floor Founders Gallery, and the transformation of the PMCA garage into the Kosmic Krylon Garage. After the end of the exhibition ended, the colorful murals spray-painted by Scharf over the course of a week remained on the walls of the garage and will continue on as a permanent installation at the museum.

SHIRE, PETER 149 W GREEN ST
Description:  Peter Shire has designed a three-dimensional artwork that functions as an awning to the adjoined building entryway. The design features overlain steel beams, both rectangular and round in form, with a red cylinder, yellow cube and blue narrow beam attached to their ends. This arrangement of shapes suggests the pieces have fallen into place by chance, like pick-up sticks that have just been released. Projecting from the building, over the sidewalk, this abstract sculpture hints at the geometric style used by Malevich, the originator of the Avant-garde Suprematist movement.

SIMPSON, BUSTER 465 S ARROYO PKWY
Description:  Whole Flow, a sculpture for Whole Foods Market functions as both work of art and water filtration system. The sculpture is composed of a series of 14 stacked, stainless steel bowls of the same size. The procession of water cascading down the structure into shallow bowls embodies an acoustic and kinesthetic experience for the pedestrian. In the artist's words: "The sculpture mitigates the water quality purging and mitigating and then offering the water to nourish a landscape by water that otherwise would have been discharged into a sewer. The procession is one of healing and of art, a journey of restoration infrastructure, serving as a model and catalyst, and suggesting a procession of paradigm shifts for Pasadena recharging the valley watershed."

Description:  Art glass windows by Arthur Stern appear in 2 locations - at the leasing center in the C-2 building and above the entry doors on Green Street. A transom of clear and colored art glass sparkle during the day and glow at night. The design reveals influences of Art Deco and the style of Frank Lloyd Wright found throughout Pasadena. At the rear entrance to the leasing center this streamlined Moderne window design appears in the transom above the door and a large side panel to the right of the entry door. While the earth tones of the colored art glass refer to the green spaces found throughout the city, the geometric arrangement of the window captures the history of Pasadena architecture and urban design.

Looking down, the subject appears to be lost in her thoughts of train schedules or dinner, perhaps even completely unaware of her surroundings. Observed by at least one other person, she is still able to create a private moment of beauty, a topographic place of her own, in the public sphere created by the development.

O'hio) Sign of the Time sculpture appears as one giant road sign hanging above the Union Street parking garage where it greets drivers passing inside or cruising down the street. A closer look reveals that in fact the artist pieced together twenty-five diamond shaped, yellow road signs in the form of one large universal sign. Re-contextualizing familiar road signs into a single collage allowed the artist to create a work of public art that emphasizes the lively graphic quality of the individual signs.

Wilson at Dusk mural, the artist addresses the concepts of landscape and topography in a straightforward way. After photographing views of the site from the roof of an adjacent building, Turner rendered the ruggedness and golden light that is uniquely Pasadena. Referencing paintings of the plein air school, Turner's work shows the city dwarfed by the San Gabriel Mountains yet still distinct in the foreground, as if some sort of compromise had been worked out.

TZANETOPOULOS, PAUL 255 MADELINE DR
Description:  A large bowl that remains perpetually full pours a constant rivulet of water into a water trough element, terminating in an acoustic water cascade. The cascade adds the sound element of both movement and falling water to the piece. To me, Westridge School is a place of great continuity with appreciation for both the environment and the self. The fountain serves as a metaphor in that the Westridge community is like a river with a constant flow of activity and energy. Each individual, whether a student, teacher or community member, adds their part, their drop of water to the river. The bowl that is perpetually full adds its creative momentum to the river that flows through. It is important that the water in the bowl is reflective ­ one can actually see herself in it ­ and that it joins the moving water. One can hear the vitality of the water and the perpetual movement in connection to the planet.

ULKE, CHRISTINA 141 S HUDSON AVE
Description:  The artist team of Christina Ulke and Ashok Sukumaran designed an installation featuring a redesigned parking ticket booth with an interactive lighting element. The booth becomes a reference to an obsolete kind of security apparata. In The Savant Guard, the act of surveillance is removed from the booth, making it the subject of both the human and machine gaze. A sun-reflector has been placed on the edge of the site to reflect natural light onto the ticket booth. This mirror-based tracking system follows the sun through the day, reflecting a constant beam of light onto the south face of the booth. The colors employed for the lighting are used to respond to the viewer in a public situation. As pedestrians pass or interrupt the reflected sunbeam from the sun-tracker, their speed determines the color of the booth making a personal action quite public. The color change is computer programmed to react to different speeds to provide a change of color.

Description:  This exhibition features artwork by Pasadena Unified School District students selected from the district's annual all-school exhibit, "No Boundaries." The work for 2007-2008, done by students ranging from kindergarten through grade 12 participating in arts education programs at 18 PUSD schools, was carefully chosen for two exhibitions, on display for six months each, by a panel of Pasadena Arts & Culture Commissioners and community arts professionals. This display of local student art represents the City of Pasadena's commitment to the collaborative partnership among PUSD, the City and its arts and culture institutions to provide a high quality, sequential, standards-based arts curriculum to all students. The City Hall exhibit is called "Bridging Boundaries" because it reflects the "bridge" between the school district and the City. Imaginative collages and large murals embody the array of visual creativity incorporated into local classrooms. Abstract designs visualized by first graders hang next to emotionally captivating black and white images photographed by local high school students. The diversity of media and subject matter presented on the walls outside City Council chambers offer visitors a chance to see the efforts of the partners, the students, their parents, teachers, principals and the community to strengthen and promote the arts and the vital role they play in all our lives.

VALADEZ, JOHN 125 E HOLLY ST
Description:  Located under the Holly Street Village Apartments and adjacent to Memorial Park, this station inspired John Valadez to honor the area's earliest indigenous artists, whose ancient pictographs and carvings have been discovered in caves and on rock cliffs and natural outcroppings throughout Southern California. Cutout aluminum images of stylized figures and reptiles based on ancient tribal designs produced by Native Americans inhabiting the coastal and southwestern regions of California were created by Valadez. These images hang suspended between columns above the station platform in an undulating lyrical composition over 100 feet in length. Vibrantly painted in red, orange, white, black and yello, the interconnecting graphic elements cast shadows against the station wall, providing a striking contrast and bringing a rhythmic pulse to the surroundings. www.metro/net/about_us/metroart/ma_mrgldmjv.htm

Translated, the title reads: "But when the thaw comes, the first sunshine is mine." The mural references the warm southern California sunshine captured in the light reflecting off the white flower blossoms within the mural.

WARD WILLIAMS, PAT 340 N LAKE AVE
Description:  Although surrounded by shops, restaurants, and office buildings, the heart of Lake Avenue lies not in its commercial core, but in the people who frequent the area and commute through the rail station. Artist Pat Ward Williams used people in transit as the subject for her artwork at the station. Area residents modeled for the artist, and she captured them in the act of pointing, waving, laughing, talking, reaching, rushing, scolding, waiting, and daydreaming. The resulting human-scale black and white photographic portraits were emblazoned on dichroic glass panels that frame the station entry galleries bisected by Lake Avenue. The station's artwork is experienced as silhouetted portraits against colored glass panels. The dichroic glass panels change subtly from shades of gold to turquoise to fuchsia as the viewer moves around and through the station gallery, and the portraits take on infinite detail and gesture. Commuters can view their own life-sized reflections in the glass, creating an animated dialogue between the actual and the illustrated. The photographs contribute to a visual vocabulary that communicates to passengers and passersby alike the collective qualities that unite us all.

WHITE, PAE 22 W GREEN ST
Description:  Pae White has captured the illusion of water within the ridged two-dimensional space of a vertical facing wall. Her four panel acrylic work is overlaid with a single sheet of Starlight tempered glass, composed of multi-layered panels of yellow, orange, blue and blue-green. The textured center of the layered panels give the glass its reflective quality, which is further enhanced through the use of a mirrored finish located on the back of each panel. The four distinct colors chosen for the four panels provide a clean modernist assumption of space juxtaposed to the quirkiness of illusion emanating from the work's interior.
