acrylic on paper strips and pencil
122″ x 175″ x 5″
Exhalation was a site-specific installation, sized to occupy a large wall at the Hosfelt Gallery in New York, in which a pattern of convex diamond shapes are articulated with thin strips of painted paper that bow out from the wall. Fluorescent paint on the backs of the strips reflects color back onto the wall, creating a hallucinatory effect. Moving out from the center, the diamond forms progressively diminish in depth and color intensity as they transition to two dimensional lines drawn on the wall, lending the impression of vanishing into the white void of space.
