Helen Pashgian: Spheres & Lenses

Text by John Yau.

Helen Pashgian: Spheres & Lenses

The Vermeer of California’s Light and Space movement: the first comprehensive monograph on Helen Pashgian’s infinitely subtle and mutable sculpture

Over the course of her career, Pasadena-based artist Helen Pashgian (born 1934) has produced a significant oeuvre of sculptures comprised of vibrantly colored columns, discs and spheres, which often feature an isolated element appearing suspended, embedded or encased within them. Using an innovative application of industrial epoxies, plastics and resins, Pashgian’s works are characterized by their translucent surfaces that appear to filter and somehow contain illumination. “One must move around to observe changes,” she testifies: “coming and going, appearing and receding, visible and invisible—a phenomenon of constant movement.”

This book documents Pashgian’s vast body of work, dating from the 1960s to now, with historic and new photographs of the artist’s spheres and discs. An essay by John Yau and a chronology built on new research is also included.

It is almost impossible to capture Pashgians with still photography, though the Radius book comes as close as I have seen.

Luminous 'Helen Pashgian: Spheres & Lenses' is new from Radius Books

Luminous 'Helen Pashgian: Spheres & Lenses' is new from Radius Books

"My work is about the ephemeral," Helen Pashgian wrote in 1988: "the way a mere 'edge' of light defines an existing image; the way light-defined images float and merge and create spatial dimension; the way the spacial dimensions suggest the deep, the ominous, the unknowable." Featured spreads are from Spheres & Lenses, the luminous new release from Radius Books. This deluxe, 172-page, 10x14-inch hardcover is, remarkably, the first comprehensive monograph on the Light and Space artist, whom essayist John Yau compares to Donald Judd. "The final link with Judd—and this is what I think places Pashgian’s work in a world all its own—is that it is neither painting nor sculpture. Her orbs of pale, floating color are mysterious and touch upon something basic to our lives, the need to grasp light as an object. Judd was a brilliant materialist interested in dematerializing the object, and revealing its impermanence. Interested in the presence of light, and all it evokes, Pashgian is wonderfully inexplicable." continue to blog
