* Attempting to Work with Plexi
Experimenting with acrylic glass sheets and solvent cement, I created a landscape of layers that shift and shadow at different angles. The subject matter is a blend of multiple environments - influenced in part by the roof-deck skyline of our space in Dorchester and the narrative influence of "day job" content.
My intention was to create layers as clean as the glass they were painted on. When when stacked together the chaos created a dirty multifaceted depth I could not fully control. I did not prepare for the challenges that come with fusing layers of glass together like a toxic Oreo. I wish I could say this piece turned out the way it was intended to.
* Ampersand Art Supply generously supported this exhibition by providing custom made archival painting panels as a uniform medium for each artist to work on, and in my case ... Ruin :)
