Pure Light
During the late 60's to mid 70's this body was created with sheet acrylic ~ meticulously crafted to make these polished containers of exploded light. Often lines of light through transparencies resemble linear perspective. I so much felt that literal imagery was inadequate and the concept of perspective (images expressed from a fixed point in space and time) were inadequate and a handicap for an artist that I titled a large body of work "Goodbye Uccello".
