"For the past few years I have been working on projects averaging 1 ½-2 years to complete. These allow me to apply specific details of changing weather patterns to my art. I am fascinated by extreme weather variations that have become the new normal and how these changes can be expressed using color and shape while exposing odd temperature leaps. These are created as patterns intended to visualize and reveal concerns about the human experience in relation to climate change."
"For 'Weatherscape' I created a 101 color pallet and assigned each color a corresponding temperature. A day is represented by a hexagon carved into 24 sections for each hour and each hour is painted the corresponding temperature. A central hexagonal section is painted with the mean temperature of the day. Each day of every month is woven together like a quilt and suspended about 1/2” from the wall.
Monthly units fit into one another like a behive. Months are identified with plates divided into 3 sections: Colors on left are the months' low; right the months' high; center the months' mean temperature. Running along the bottom edge is the entire color pallet (think map legend), numbered with coordinating temperatures.
'Weatherscape' will be completed by late summer 2017. Photos show about 70% of the project."
