This wallpiece series has been evolving for many years, related closely to the
evolution of outdoor, site-specifc environments set in nature. The selected
group presented here, focuses on cycles of nature and renewal in different ways.
These works were created during different
periods. Most recent are the two maquettes, Springtime Rebirth and
Sunrise, Sunset, created for a new wing of the Upstate Medical Cancer Center
in Syracuse, New York. These layered works are intended as large wall
installations, to be illuminated between the layers. The front layer, a
simulated stained glass painting, blends with, yet counterpoints the back layer,
a more dense painting. Holographic effects result.
All of these works combine diverse media, such as bark,
branches, transparent and heavier acrylics, lexan, wood, paper, and broken
glass. They are intentionally ephemeral, often exploring life’s fragilities,
changeability and uncertainty.
