Grounding Sky and Sculpting with Blue
 
In the outdoor park surroundings, Grounding Sky, as viewed from afar or nearby, reveals a changing blue light quality in relationship to the viewer and the sculpture in space and time. 
 
My recent sculptures have multi-angled surfaces painted in varied tonalities which visually amplify the effects of sunlight acting on their color.   Grounding Sky is comprised of interlocking timber beams that form a large open structure 3D grid.  The spaces articulated between the materials are key to my concept and process of both sculpting and painting with light and color.  
 
I paint with varied tones of a single hue on adjacent planes of the sculpture, experimenting with their relationships to produce light from the color interaction.  This new color/light is visually perceptible as an ambient glow beyond the 3D form of the sculpture, proposing color/light as the 4th dimensional attribute of Grounding Sky’s multi-faceted sculptural form.
 
My current focus on sculpture is the use of the sculptural form with the variation of tonality of color resulting in an additional aspect of sculpture beyond the 3D axiom.
