  • Catalogue Essay

    Looking at these images, we think of the Northern Lights, sunspots, mushroom clouds or volcanic explosions seen either from a great distance or in greatly magnified detail. These events are depicted to meticulous, if not obsessive, perfection through a procedure that involves a great deal of taping the stenciling, and that leaves very little indication of human involvement. Each color of the spectrum has its own separate physical layer. Both process and result suggest topographical maps, but even though there’s an inclination to read the darkest colors as ocean depths and the brightest as mountain ranges – here it is the topography of light and hue that is being charted. (Roberta Smith, New York Times, 5/22/87)
