In 2009 I dreamed of ethereal yet accurate human forms comprised of ribbons floating in air.
These new sculptures are the materialization of those dreams.
These works are specifically figurative: guests can recognize the actual person who modeled for my art. This recognizability was one of my main goals.
Another goal was to present solid forms at the edges of the panels that appeared distinct and disconnected from the main forms defined by cuts.
These artworks fundamentally transform light, producing novel and surprising results. They simultaneously cause and utilize reflection, refraction, diffraction and diffusion of light. The floating forms in these pieces have substantial ethereal halos resulting from light transformations through parallel panels of glass. Separate as they may seem, the "Edge twins" appearing as solid figures at the outer edges of the panels, do not physically exist. These edge twins are instead made of light being redirected through the curves of cut glass, traveling through many inches of glass within each panel, and finally exiting the outer edges of the sculptures.
These sculptures appear to reveal the souls of angels: something seen but that is not physically there. These works are at once both transparent and translucent and change dramatically with differences in lighting and the viewer's perspective.
