Landscape colour field #17 is part of a series of work that explores the ephemerality of clouds. In this piece, Tataryn contemplates both chaos and order in his composition and reflects on the patterns and transformations of these weather shape shifters. Order is mapped by the strict and precise mathematical geometry applied to the execution of the lighted tubes; chaos manifests in the blended techniques of Venetian glass blowing and traditional neon tube processing where the shapes take their form by the fluid movements of the craftspeople.
Landscape colour field #17 contains gestural white and blue neon at the top of the composition that references cloud formations. The bottom half of the composition includes shades of green and yellow and references the grasses and foliage in the surrounding landscape of Silver Lake.
