Sculpture, Booth 521
Kal Mansur is best known for his translucent and vivid acrylic sculptures, which he has been producing since 2006. His work is unique in its use of diffusion and concealment as compositional elements. His primary work consists of a translucent case containing dimensional acrylic components that are receptive to light. The light casts internal shadows, illuminates blocks of pulsating colour, and allows the viewer to visually travel through the spaces he composes. These pieces are powerful translators of available light. Mansur produces sculpture, painting, and large-scale installations. He completed his BFA from the University of Texas at Austin in 1990. He is represented by galleries in Canada, Europe, and the United States. His work is in various collections, including Tiffany and Company (Honolulu and Moscow), Bonjour Capital (New York), George Brown College (Toronto), Ryerson University (Toronto), the Norwegian Cruise Line, the Caribbean Cruise Line, Related Companies (New York), Senvest Corporation (Montreal), Sloan-Kettering (New York), Alliance Capital (New York), and KPMG (Toronto).
