Interactive Polage® Art

My work is always an act of discovery, both for me and viewers of my artwork. In a sense, my work is completed by those participating in it. That is why, for me, my most rewarding works are the interactive pieces I have created for clients like Maui Jim, Inc., science museums and nature visitor centers.  See the rest of  this post….




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.
