Tom Burrow's luminous panels originate as cast, pigmented polymer resin sculptures - hollow forms with a space between two layers that bounces light back to the surface in surprising ways. Light reflects, illuminating the piece from within. The panels change subtly depending on the light they are in, the time of day, even the seasons. As containers of light, they exude a meditative quality, fields of color absorbing the viewer. The panels are lightweight, durable, and UV resistant.
