SHOW STATEMENT

I have endeavored to transform the gallery into an entirely different kind of space by utilizing forms to evoke a sense of the sacred without directly invoking sacred imagery.  A series of arches provide the framework for the installation as a whole.  The delicate narrow point of each beam seems to barely touch the ground and almost miraculously soar into arches high above the viewer.  The simplicity of the forms is juxtaposed with  the engineering mind that devised the method for achieving the desired feel.
