Take a pew in front of James Turrell’s new light works at Pace Gallery. The three circular shapes, new additions to the artist’s Constellation series, slowly morph from one colour to the next with hypnotic effect. Known as the ‘Light and Space Master’, Turrell has been in the spotlight this year thanks to Kanye West who in January donated $10 million to help fund the completion of his Roden Crater in the Arizona desert, a monumental work-in-progress since the early 70’s. When you consider that to experience the Roden Crater you’d need to fly to the US and then enter the bowl of the extinct volcano, strolling into the contemporary surrounds of Mayfair’s Pace Gallery feels like a very easy trip. The works are nonetheless utterly transportive, you’ll want to stay looking and looking – it’s like a free dose of light and colour therapy. There’s a fourth diamond-shaped work on display in the Pace office too (you can ask to see it) or just peek in through the external window on the right as you exit the gallery onto Burlington Gardens.
