Work > Painting in Space
Painting in Space - Site-responsive room sized installations: By removing the painted silk “canvas” from the stretcher bars and placing it in three-dimensional space, the surface layer becomes a "Painting in Space". Silk enables me to experiment spatially while using it symbolically as a facade-like structure. It is deceptively strong, yet ethereal in nature. The silk organza holds shape and bares the burden of pigment, yet it allows shadow and light to play a role in the work. My challenge here is to distill experiential space to its very essence.
