Perspex Frost ™ as a New Medium in Sculpture.

Perspex-Frost-Sculpture-thumb

The last works created by the sculptor Sir Anthony Caro in the two years before his death in 2013 will be the focus of a major exhibition at Annely Juda Fine Art in London.
Regarded as one of the greatest British sculptors of his generation, Caro’s long career is characterised by his innovative use of materials.
Between 2011–2013 Caro began to experiment with Perspex, a material that he had only employed in one previous sculpture, the 2000 Duccio Variations No. 5. Initially interested in the transparent quality of glass, Caro turned to Perspex as a less fragile and easier material to work with.

 
 
 
It also provided greater opportunity to experiment with colour; many of the works in the 25-strong Perspex series employ coloured sheets of Perspex, which contrast with the rusted steel or wooden structures into which they are incorporated.
In End of Time (2013), for example, a shockingly bright red sheet of Perspex is placed across the top of the sculpture, while in River Run an earthy, semi-translucent green gives the metal pipes and sheets behind it an almost ghostly appearance. 
PERSPEX FROST is available in more than 20 colours in thicknesses that vary from 3, 6 to 10mm. Allplastics stock, cut and fabricate the PERSPEX sheets to customer specifications.
