Achromatic surfaces at first glance subsequently reveal radiant auras of subtly colored light. The concealed verso sides of the pieces employ surfaces painted fluorescent colors to reflect glowing ambient light on the surrounding wall.

The work is minimal, presenting moments to hold still.

darkness of the
raisins there was
half of the
then the shadow
of the past
From “No Sky” by Etel Adnan, translation from French by Sarah Riggs
