Like vinyl rainbows arching across the horizon, the wall sculptures emerging from Derrick Velasquez’s Denver studio capture movement and color in dynamic planes. The artist overlays striped patterns in palettes reminiscent of beaches and deserts onto a wooden shaft, creating a cascade of color from a central point. Velasquez (previously) cuts the vinyl into non-uniform strips that, once stacked on top of each other, allow a shaggy, fluid edge to emerge.

The sculptures shown here are part of the artist’s ongoing work. Entitled series and will be available until July 28 at Skye Gallery in New York, alongside Linda López and MarSha Yi Robinson. Find more from Velasquez on Instagram.
