Rosy Future is a corner installation in my 2015 exhibition at Edward Cella Art+Architecture, and begins with a dark wheel of tar paper rolling behind a stack of sheet rock. Some panels are partially cut with rose window shapes inspired by those at Chartres Cathedral. Black dry wall screws, balanced on the gallery floor with their points upward, form a spiral galaxy. A six foot diameter window, made from layers of sheet rock, emerges from the far corner of the attached drywall panels. Matte shades of rose magenta, from very dark to pale pink, are painted in the window insets. Suggesting a rotating galaxy, the same shapes emerge in a sunrise of oil glazes on the gallery wall.
