Beyond the Wall, 2017

Graphite and latex on wall. Dimensions variable.
Annex Space, Bush Barn Art Center, Salem, Oregon.

Beyond the Wall uses the interior architecture of the Annex to generate a continuous gesture that sweeps across the gallery while simultaneously embracing and taking over the space. This gesture includes an unwieldy, yet grounded band of yellow that echoes the terrain surrounding the gallery. Sparking off of this form are bursts of vertical and diagonal graphite lines. With their contrasting widths and directions, the lines evoke a conflict that is visually resolved through their placement on the yellow.
