The Metamorphosis of the Flame, May 19 2023, The Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus, Ohio
Paper Wall Installation: Emboss Print on Hand cut Paper, fluorescent ink and paint, wire
An ethereal, otherworldly, print media, and light installation, visual experience
Inspired by shadows, I invite light to activate fluorescent layers of paint and ink on the back of my art. I use the materiality of paper altered through hand cutting, deeply embossing, and inking to create organic forms with color altered shadows. Each large installation is ethereal, and otherworldly producing a stunning visual experience for viewers.
The Wonderball 2023 theme was Awaken and this work represents an awakening of myself after hardship, but also an awakening of people as we begin to understand the consequences of the climate crisis.
