A water column is a conceptual column of water from the surface of the sea, river or lake to the bottom and is used for environmental studies. My research has inspired the current installation work. The work celebrates the life supporting qualities of our planet waters and deals with the accelerating crisis of global warming.
The Water Column series consists of 8 Mylar panels (seven 114X36in and one 114x42in) which I see presented suspended (randomly) from the ceiling so that viewers can walk through the installation and view the panels from either side. This takes advantage of Mylar`s transparency and allows light to travel through the work the way it travels through water.
I`ve decided to tackle the issue of PLASTIC as separate framed paintings created on layers of semitransparent Mylar as well.
