About Experiment I

EXPERIMENT I is a wall hanging made of thin copper plates bolted to PVC sheet.

When I torch cut copper, all of the surfaces exposed to the extreme heat turn beautiful shades of burnt golden brown, as well as many other lovely metallic shades. I usually sand or polish these colors away and have often felt it a shame. This time, I wanted to create a work which would feature these tones and colors.

When I created EXPERIMENT I I felt that, in many ways, it was, in fact, an experiment. By making organic shapes and colors with heat, I felt I was creating a sort of Petri dish.
