The ehavior of light waves that carry color and shape to our brains has been a recent obsession of mine. The metal pipes and tubes function as convex mirrors, absorbing the scene around them and reflecting a complex tangle of color and form that is further woven by my physical layering of paper in the studio. I revealed more negative space in a few works for clarity of the compositions. These visual experiments fuel my curiosity of mathematics and all the poetic moments offered by invisible forces around us.
