Crypsis is artist Dirk Westphal’s latest series of photographic collections showcasing artificial colors. While previous bodies of the artist’s work feature the eye-popping hues of such consumer products as toothpaste, nail polish, and prepackaged desserts, Crypsis is Westphal’s homage to the beauty of plastic caps. Photographed in hyper detail on glowing white lightboxes, plastic caps of different shapes, shades, and sizes are transformed into vibrant kaleidoscopes of color. For more information, visit the exhibition page here.
