Although trained as a painter, I have largely worked as a site-specific, sculptural installation artist. My education has inspired me to study light and use it as a medium in my sculptural work. I believe this is a natural progression: throughout history, painters have chased the light, trying to perfect its depiction in their two-dimensional works and replicate what they see in real life. Studying painting throughout the years has made me want to push the boundaries of what, according to art history, is a dead art form.
Recently, my fascination with working with light as a medium has included the gloaming – otherwise known as twilight – a moment in time when the sun’s rays are defused and scattered by the earth’s atmosphere. Twilight is a visually magical time of day, when even the ugliest things can appear beautifully retooled, painted with lavender light and delicate shadows. This obsession with the way light transforms the world around me throughout the day into night has manifested itself in my work through a series of hand-painted, site-specific installations intended to capture and expose the slow beauty of the gloaming.
My artworks are often created out of thousands of feet of white twine brushed with an invisible ultraviolet acrylic. I prefer to build these installations in well-daylit environments, so the viewer can watch the temporal transformation of white twine to glowing neon color: as the sunlight disappears, the black light is activated and the artwork changes from one form to another, mirroring twilight’s magic. The completed piece is a multi-sensory experience intended to engulf the visual senses and reawaken the simple intrigue of looking.
