Artwork > Light Installations

While working on my M.F.A. degree in sculpture, I began creating many temporary installations involving fluorescent light. I constructed the tubes of light to make ladders, doors, windows, and even entire rooms of light. These sculptures often served as metaphors for physical, psychological, and/or spiritual passage, exploring the contrast of light & dark spaces to suggest transition, transformation, or even transcendence.

Limited edition prints and photographs of some of these installations have been exhibited in several shows, and are available for purchase.
