被称为「彩虹艺术家」的叆呕打破绘画的轮廓线条,利用彩红光谱的色相取代各种图样。此外,以触觉为首的知觉艺术之实验、在国际前卫艺术运动「激浪派」的活动,及终其一生持续进行的版画制作等活动皆具有叆呕的特色。另外,叆呕也在各地展开为现今偶发艺术及装置艺术的先驱──环境艺术。

于1961-62年制作的《Hydra》是以圆柱形铝制主体及灯泡制成的装置,其六个灯笼会让人联想到在希腊神话中出现的多头蛇Hydrā。灯笼内部的灯泡散发人工光芒,因热度产生的上升气流有着如螺旋桨般的作用,使得在灯芯上安装转轴的灯笼本身也受到自然现象的影响而旋转。从其中溢出的光芒因灯笼的旋转以及作品本体的铝板表面产生的反射,除了因研磨而浮现出会让人联想到蛇在相互交缠的流动图案之外,在展览室的墙壁与天花板也产生光之奇观。展出《Hydra》的第五展览室前半部的环境、事物,就连鉴赏者本身也被此装置营造出的光之空间所包围,成为叆呕的环境艺术与环境的一部分。
