Bartow G. Daniels, Primary Colors, 1978, acrylic, plastic, metal, mirrored glass, styrofoam, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Bartow V. Daniels in memory of their son, 1995.31
Bartow Daniels said, “One of the reasons I got into plastics was because of the color. I was so sick of looking at silver and gold.” In this piece, the artist used the transparency of the plastic to showcase the color in the Styrofoam beads. The movement of the beads and the reflective properties of the mirrors make the necklace interactive for wearer and observer.
