The art like an object isn't his subject of exploration. James Turrell works with perception and light. He focuses on the colorful light that is not illuminating the object, but create an a geometrical shape itself. He alters space around the viewer to achieve a curtain perception illusion. Personally speaking, i love the use of color in hie works, it reminds me about an area of alternative medicine that explore the influence of color on the health. I also admire his idea to cut a square in a selling so that the sky could be seen as an artwork. You don't usually pay attention to the beauty of the sky but when it is seen thought a colorful frame it is seen in a new way. I like that rediscover aspect in his works.
