Drape at Augen

This week Drape opens.

It will wrap around two walls in the back room at Augen Desoto. It was actually Bob Kochs, owner and director of Augen, who suggested the cornering idea and I liked it. All the lights are on the wrap. The darkness elsewhere lets you feel that you're coming across something.

Some say my painting is warm. Vincent Romaniello called it hot. I think we often associate geometric abstraction with a kind of coolness, but that's not the case with this. When they were photographed on the floor, leaning against the wall, Horia Boboia called them a heater.
