Architectural Furniture

The furniture came about after seeing a show of Yaacov Agam at the Guggenheim in 1980. His paintings were corrugated canvases that had two separate paintings on either side of the corrugation. When the viewer walked across the plane of the painting it changed. After making an example I wondered how to make it three dimensional, thus the column came into play. The works were created resting on a lazy Susan, so I could spin them to achieve the fluid movement of color (e.g. Comet). Eventually images crept into the work and functionality soon followed. Most of the work are essentially cabinets as the interior space is now utilized.

The pieces are made of wood and painted in acrylic with a protective finish.
