DANCING LIGHT IN QUIET SPACES
Acrylic, metal leaf on paper.
12” x 12”. 2020.
The person who sent me this light said something to the effect of, “I don’t think this is the kind of pretty light you’re looking for, but you asked. So here is the light over my parking lot.”
What’s not to love about this light? There’s something so real and relatable to purely functional lights. I feel young and a little rebellious thinking about hanging out beneath these lights in dark parking lots or in alleys. These are the “pass through” spaces. The places where conversations finish before departing. The places which greet us when we come home and the places which remain when we leave.
The work is 12”x12” on heavyweight, vellum-surface paper. Signed front. Signed and dated on back. This work is framed behind glass in a matte gold, metal frame.
