Although this spare and abstract work has only a tenuous relationship to its original subject matter—a house and dormer window—it maintains a connection to the physical world. Consisting of two flat sculptural pieces balanced in dynamic tension on a corner edge, and characterized by a fluorescent color scheme, the work hums with its own palpable presence.
