Artist Statement: Universal Transit is a rendition of a passage. In this work I have tried to capture the gestural and expressive qualities of the drawing created while working through ideas. The gestural line is an important counter to the geometric related and more rigid elements. Just as with this juxtaposition, I have incorporated the elements of refinement that are in contrast to one another. I have chosen leave rough areas of tooling to discuss the architectural elements while using other surfaces to direct light and heighten the use of light to add space. The color is special in that it has the opportunity to change between gray, blue and violet. This occurs with different light sources but also with the movement of the viewer, just as the passage is a metaphor for movement and transition, The viewer supports this aspect with their movement. The colors relate to transitory states; ascension, tranquility, death, rebirth.
