This site-specific alla prima work, is intended to explore some of the history and psychic energy of the location. The forms resemble a pattern created by a bird's wings when taking flight.
The site is close to my studio. A house-fire here, resulted in the death of a woman who lived there. There is some other history attached to this event. An understanding of the personal tragedy that took place here, played a role in the evolution of these forms.
The basic elements are strainer bars that were intended to be used for a painting. They are hinged with rope, creating a structure similar to that of a doorframe. These elements can be arranged in different ways to evoke a variety of associations, depending on orientation, proximity and context.
