Featured this month is the artwork SF No. 8, From Bus 33. This piece is a progression from the Bus 33 series, taking the visuals created during artist’s commute and then replicating them in an entirely controlled studio. The work juxtaposes perfect and imperfect lines, adding a more reflective dimension to the series’ focus on ideals. The colors are selected from the Sherwin Williams 2018 color forecast.

This piece, Future Prospectus, Pavilion, is composed of two parts, the physical structure with colorful exterior, and the interior where viewers can enter and view a video installation of artist’s series Assault. The structure is composed of individual triangular paintings that combine bright colors with the natural pigmentation of the wood. The paintings are assembled together as part of a three-dimensional collage. This artwork is an immersive and dual experience of color and the way it interacts with its environment. It was presented as part of the DX Art Festival at the Old Police Station art nonprofit and received the 2009 Arts Council England Award.
