12.6 Black Star

Neon, paint. 2014
13’ diameter

In 12.6 Black Star the neon is affixed directly to the supporting wall, a 13’ black disk painted beneath the neon and directly on the wall. The black disk, although completely two-dimensional, combined with the adjacent light gives a perceptual impression of depth. Depending on the placement of the viewer the piece appears volumetric or flat, full or empty. The artwork, with exceptional minimal means transcends into the sublime and engulfs the viewer into another dimension.
