Description

This piece is part of the Focus Gallery exhibition, “The Earth Provides,” located upstairs in the Folk Art Center.

“My Scared Geometry Glass series explores a sculptural side of two-dimensional pieces: flat compositions focusing on symbolic or trompe l’oeil themes.  My goal is to challenge the line between two and three dimensional art, and I want to infuse my pieces with a sense of strength or symbolism that makes an impression on the viewer.

I am intrigued by the mathematical forms in nature and art, and the optical illusions that can be created solely through compositions, color and light.  These effects are obvious in some of my pieces such as the Penrose and Fibonacci designs.  And, by manipulating the surface quality and color of the glass, I’m able to add the dimension of light in a way that is unique to each piece and its environment.  Hopefully, my work stretches the viewers’ imagination and leaves them with a with strong presence and sense of hidden meaning.”
