Cavernous; a hanging series of four multimedia paintings on panel in installation with titles in sequence as a poem. The heaviest painting may weigh up to 40 pounds, the lightest 15 pounds. Two pieces will need access to electricity. Each will be 36in wide by 48in high varying in depths from 3-6in.
Do you have a Light
consumed in passing
assumed in cannibal reflections
an I for an eye
if only we could remain so blind
and full of feeling
A poem composed of sculptural paintings in a series informed by Plato’s Cave, the biblical story of Adam and Eve, and Baudelaire’s The Man and the Sea to be critical of predisposition to patterns in perception and their obstruction of spacial and emotional experience. This is poetically morphed from a criticism of a traditional light/dark, good/bad duality in that such prejudice leaves a viewer blind to other beauties and values.
This series is my first time incorporating lights as sculpture into paintings, which then prompted the use of glass and the attention to actual (not illusionistic) shadow and light. Those oriented toward lighter images are textually aggressive and forward while those that are darker are softer and more receding. Each piece expresses its image differently as environmental lighting and atmosphere may change.
