April 2 – May 7, 2016
Artist reception: April 16, 7-9:30pm

A solo exhibition continuing the reductive exploration of light, color and material, and placing added emphasis on the behavior of light in relation to color and space. The exhibition includes a combination of fine art and commercial materials employed for their inherent physical characteristics: the expansive glow of fluorescent Plexiglas, the subtle movement of vinyl curtain, the delicate translucency of sheer fabric.

BAU Institute Residency
During June 2011 I spent several weeks in Otranto, Italy as a Fellow in Residence with BAU Institute. The residency provided me with the time to reevaluate my relationship to reductive art making and to contemplate the amazing catapult balls located in the Castle of Otranto.
