Mixed Media (Insulation Foam Board, Lights, Mylar, Gels, Denril)

Room: 40’w x 40’ L x 18’H – 6 x 2-sided light boxes ranging from 30’ L to 18’L

Missouri Southern State University, Spiva Gallery, Joplin, MO


The long, skinny, vertical windows inspired the landscape of light beams made of 18-ft to 30-ft, 2-sided, light boxes. These define and unite the overall space while creating a contemplative atmosphere that slows viewers down and encourages wandering. My investigations operate quietly – looking to subtle shifts of light and shade to reveal or obscure meaning. Parts may be absorbed but never the whole.
