Middle Sticks | 2015

Mass Art, Paine Bakalar Galleries, Boston, MA

In Middle Sticks, the viewer enters a deep blue room with benches. A large print hovers below the floor in the middle of the space, appearing to be in constant slow motion, while its projected onto from above. Middle Sticks explores the concept of moving light and its ability to enliven aspects of objects and space, creating a dynamism that would otherwise remain hidden. In sampling the color palette of a known still painting by Mirò, then translating this static work into a time-based poetic abstraction, it becomes possible to investigate what lies beneath that which is visible in full stationary light. A once familiar painting is transformed into a luminous, mesmerizing, and shifting chromatic spectrum.
