Iridescent paints include pearlescent and int erference pigments, and are made from tiny transparent mica flakes which are coated on all sides with layers of metal oxide. They are highly refractive (they can bend light) and are reflective, like little mirrors. The effects of these pigments are very angle dependent. Thus, my new works are like old Myths and are unabashedly and intentionally, imaginative, decorative and extraverted. more
