Color Constructs

These relief constructions refer to architectural structures such as walls, doorways, bridges, and piers in the way the forms layer and span a series of open spaces. Composed of basic wood building materials, such as plywood, shingles, and laths, the reliefs incorporate subtle shifts of perspective in relation to the colors and shapes of the wooden elements. Working on a ground of stained plywood, the pieces are layered over a structural grid, much like the studs in a wall. Often the inherent grain of the plywood is accentuated through color that evokes the illusion of water or air currents. Contrasts of architectonic and organic forms in concert with intense and saturated color, add to the dynamic quality of these pieces.
