About the work

Mary Corse used glass microspheres painted in acrylic for her artwork which is currently displayed at 601 South Figueroa. Since the early 1960s, Mary Corse has created abstract, monochromatic paintings. In 1964, she completed a group of white-on-white, shaped canvases and began painting with glass microspheres in 1968. These tiny, perfect spheres of glass refract light and make for a luminous surface that is not attainable using pigment alone.
