Building on April Key's architectural influences, this work is inspired by the Old Temple of Athena, located on the Acropolis of Athens. The flow of the curves mimics the vast riches of temples past, saturating the open space below with vibrant colors. The journey through the arches of ‘Archaic Temple’, with its changing light, exhibits the power of the neon gas, where five distinct colors merge to radiate a kaleidoscope of intricate gradients. This piece serves as a complement and in juxtaposition to the artist's signature Ocean Drive Collection. It demonstrates how contemporary design can be inspired by ancient yet timeless architectural forms - reimagined for the 21st century. The delightful work is a visual example of how the evolution of design, aesthetics and architecture can be presented in a continuous narrative.
*Hand blown neon shows natural markings inside the glass over time. The collection is primarily constructed out of laser cut plexiglass, sprayed down to a matte white finish. The handmade glass neon, carefully blown by highly experienced ateliers in Istanbul, has a lifespan of up to 20 years, after which the transformer (power supply) can be replaced for continued use. Each piece is wired to be plugged into any grounded 3-prong US electrical outlet.
