Three large gilded pieces on wall at top of stairs from the atrium, docent

“My Spectacular Shine project manifests as gilded receipts. Though coded, the work explores notions of my personal narrative and the search for a place. The receipts function as a self-mapping mechanism – an abstracted portrait.  They work as the residue of my presence, as evidence.  The gilding is a simple gesture intended to elevate the receipts into the realm of illuminated manuscripts and tapestries and embody reflective aspirations. The zero is something. An empty space indicator or the symbol of a circle.  A continuous enclosure and an infinite embrace. Spectacular Shine is a meditative open-ended ritual grounded in material transcendence and a deep dive into self-reflection.”
