Color Is

2018 | October 25 | 30 Minutes

My work interest has always been a study in, and observation of light and space.
Often technically two-dimensional, certain projects demand space around them in a specific way, attest to a longstanding relationship with architecture- the impact on the senses at different scales, creating tactile and experiential opportunity, exploring color as an object in and of itself.
While scale change encourages a cycle of (re)creating, color and light play the more significant part of creating, perceiving and appreciating ’environment.’
color is space, space is color, color is light.
color can heal, raise one from the dead.
