Paul Caporn: Level Compositions

The objects used are familiar but he pushes them in new directions. In his Level Composition Series, Caporn takes an ordinary construction measuring tool – the level – along with light and color, sometimes neon, and makes these contemporary tableaux. I’ve always found levels with their moving, and ideally centered, bubbles to be beautiful objects in themselves, so these pieces really appeal to me.
