Discrete Gradient

Poplar, graphite, nails, thread, 11'x8'

September 2015


Discrete Gradient is a direct descendant of Passage. Dara Solliday and I liked the colorshift of the piece and wanted to see it more fully expressed with more vertical members. Using sixty six 30" sections of poplar we were able to achieve a smooth gradient, which is nevertheless made of discrete elements—each piece of poplar receiving stains mixed in a linear ratio from its predecessor. We hung the verticals so they form a thick color bar over a floor to ceiling drawing.

Discrete Gradient is currently adjacent to our studios at the Good Arts Building.
