Polage® Art Commission

for the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts

In 2012, the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts commissioned Austine to create an interpretation of a large painting in their collection called Cazador de Nubes by Edgar Soberon. This is the second “interpretation” Austine has created for the MMFA.

Hi, I’m Austine Wood Comarow. I create Polarized Light Art, which I call Polage® art, a term I coined from “polarized light collage.” All my work starts as a drawing. I then follow the drawing, cutting many different thicknesses of clear, colorless cellulose into hundreds of tiny pieces at different angles, laminating each piece between polarizing filters. The result, when viewed in polarized light is an image made of pure light and color. I use no pigments whatsoever.
