Prismatic Sketches of Hands and Faces by Lui Ferreyra

December 22, 2016

Kate Sierzputowski

Artist Lui Ferreyra draws colorful portraits of hands and faces, works that use discrete shapes of color as highlights and shadows. These geometric fragments are blended by the viewer's eye rather than the artist's hand, producing color fields that Ferreyra intends to call attention to the connection between seeing and language. "There’s a double move at play here," explains Ferreyra's website about his work. "The first move is substantiated by a geometric matrix which functions as surface: it embraces and emphasizes the aspect of flatness within a complex network of geometric shapes, each unique unto itself. The second move is fulfilled by the cumulative…

Prismatic Portraits by Lui Ferreyra Form a Collision of Geometry and Color

Denver-based artist Lui Ferreyra (previously) has spent the last decade honing a technique that portrays faces, hands, and landscapes as dense fields of geometric color. While evoking a tone that clearly references the digital age, Ferreyra also draws inspiration from artists like Chuck Close and Egon Schiele who famously worked with aspects of pointillism and geometry. Seen here are a collection of drawings and sketches, but he utilizes a similar fragmentary style for oil paintings as well. You can follow Ferreyra on Instagram and see more of his work at William Havu Gallery.

The New Face of Colossal

November 1, 2017

Christopher Jobson

If you noticed things are a little different around here lately, you're right—after nearly a year of work we're extremely excited to announce that Colossal finally has a new look! The design represents the most dramatic facelift in our 7-year history and our first true redesign in over 4 years. The design brings our underlying technology and infrastructure up to speed, making things a bit more accessible on mobile devices, improving access to our massive archive of over 5,000 articles, and introducing a few subtle new features. We have a handful of tweaks left here and there, but otherwise we're…
