Painterly Spectrum resin by Taeg Nishimoto
“Painterly spectrum resin” is a table lamp that brings colors and their associations into a space as an object
It is made of epoxy resin cast on the surface of parchment paper on which different color strokes are applied beforehand using latex paint, evoking the image of distant sky, water or landscape. When it’s lit, the light source inside makes those associations visible in a transient yet abstract way.
It is an exploration of using the spectrum of painted colors as texture. Three individual resin pieces of about 30 – 40cm, 3 mm thick, are placed around the triangular base to make one lamp.
During the day, the lamp appears as a colorful object in the corner of a space. When it’s lit in the dark, the light bulb set inside lights up the object visually evoking an arresting image of the presence of sun or moon, depending on the colors of adjacent resin pieces. The three sides of the lamp projects out different hues of colored light to the wall around it.
