Like all of us, as another year is about to fly away into memory, each of us has had challenges that live among the joys we experienced this year. In 2023 we look towards the new year to come as a fresh start. With hope in our hearts, Bruce and I wish you and all the loved ones that touch you, joy this holiday season. And to all our creative friends we look forward to seeing the beauty to come.

Cleveland Public Library “See Also” Public Art Initiative – QUADRATALUX Art Wall

I was commissioned by the Cleveland Public Library in partnership with Land Studio to create a 10 x 30 foot art wall for the South Brooklyn neighborhood branch as part of CPL’s SEE ALSO public art initiative. My work QUADRATALUX will be up for one year.

About the Art:
An outgrowth from my architecture, the tenants I learned about making buildings; structure, composition and the grid, to name some, are relevant to making art as well and they are my guiding principles. In QUADRATALUX, I use geometry and color in an optically energetic composition to instill a feeling of kinetic motion and energy representing a joyous visual song and little piece of me that has been freed from pain.

About See Also:
See Also is a library term for “Look Here”. The series brings innovative and thought-provoking temporary works of art each summer to the Eastman Reading Garden at Cleveland Public Library’s main branch and murals to neighborhood library branches throughout the city.
