"Pieces of Light"
“Light is a thing that cannot be reproduced, but must be represented by something else – by color.”
I just love color, don't you? In my years as a muralist I have collected many cans of brightly colored house paint. Inevitably some of it dries out before I can spread it on a surface, and I save the dregs. This sculpture/mosaic was made exclusively with globs and patches of dried paint, along with a few salvaged twist ties for structural stability. I hope that looking at it makes you happy!
