Artist Statement

This drawing is part of an on-going series started in 2006 of identically sized drawings with diverse, changing subjects (from abstract patterns, to figurative pictures, to text, to monochromes). Here the drawing depicts the effect of a prism hung in a window, splitting the sunlight and casting rainbows across a white panelled wall, freezing this small wonder in time.
