Paper cut on Tyvek, wood, and fabric
84" x 60" x 60"

This shelter captures the figure as it exists in an ephemeral state, in a place between reality and the mystical. The use of pattern flattens the picture plane and contributes to the shift of space and being. The colors are of the sky at various times of day, the pink hue found at dawn blending with the vibrant blue found during the day. The patterns are influenced by the Chinese folk art of papercut. The delicate lines combine with bold shapes to create visual movement and vibration.
