Temporary Shade is a recent work-in-progress series featuring black and white paper window shades that I draw upon, cut into and otherwise alter from their original purpose. Each shade or grouping of shades can be exhibited as stand-alone artworks or designed for the development of site-specific and responsive sculptural installations. The shades, already fragile, are made more so as pieces are removed, rendering the negative space equally important to the visual experience. I am interested in how the shades mask and reveal, framing space and creating effects of light and shadow.
Individual shades are available for purchase.
Please contact me for availability, pricing or for more information about my site-specific installation work.
