An architect is forced to manipulate form in three dimensions. Esthetic concerns meet practical, functional concerns involving
constraints. An artist manipulates form without thought of functional concerns, creating invented spaces that may not exist in actual physical form.
These art works, simultaneously both painting and spatial sculpture, suggest space in and out of the picture plane surrounding the viewer. They use color to define transparency and placement in space. Forms passing through transparent planes are affected by color change, creating new multi-dimensional elements breaking the picture plane and altering the viewer’s perceptions of these illusory planes.
