The recurring themes in my work are fragility, transparency, balance, weightlessness, and gravity. My work with glass slides offers insight into these themes and my approach to them. The glass installations convey a disarming directness and an immediate visual reference to the structural properties of light. This work focuses on the inherent tension between its transparency as a light medium and its aggressiveness as a projecting grid.
