Solo exhibitions at galleries within art departments have prompted several experimental responses. Drawing in Space, installed at Wayne State University was exactly this kind of work. Forgoing any other naming or narrative than that of making the work itself, this installation allowed me to focus on a variety of optical and connective considerations within a broader investigation of color. Within the framework of Drawing, sculpture and craft decisions took the role of mark-making, while color use amplified my tendency to use color as an associative device, rather than a space-making tool (as in painting). The low slung structure positioned at one end of the space allowed a look at a large variety of compositional propositions negotiated by the proximity of the viewer inĀ an all white space.
