Verso Variations

“The Verso Variations” explores the concept of portals onto a transcendent space. Based on the frescoes of the San Rufino Cathedral in Assisi, this series of constructed drawings references sacred ornamentation that has been eroded by time. Fabricated with numerous layers of mylar cut in elaborate patterns, the artworks create a visual statement that is both pictorial and volumetric. Light is used a medium to convey the image, with patterns gaining depth through the translucent layering of light and shadow. Adopting color schemes from Renaissance painting, “The Verso Variations” incorporates patterns of line that appear to be drawn in space and cast a delicate shadow. This series, which is painstakingly hand-colored on translucent paper, recalls the luminous effect of stained glass.
