Doorways Series

I made the pieces in this series by first building a table top construction of white board. In the first three layers going back away from the viewer I cut portals patterned loosely after a set of concentric doorways in an Anasazi ruin. The fourth layer in the background is solid. I then lit the construction using a number of colored light sources to explore the various color “chords” you see in the different versions. I was also interested in the sense of going back into the inner space that is created by soft shadows in certain pieces. One in the series lacks shadows and appears flat. The individual panels in the composite study may be purchased and framed separately.
