"Wind Through Four Points" - Four Points Office Building, West Palm Beach, Florida
in collaboration with Gary L. Moore
The artwork’s title Wind Through Four Points plays off of the points of a compass. The installation is thematically centered on the gesture of opening the front door. Metaphorically, the wind rushes through the building; spreading through the lobby and all "four points" of its interior. The colourfull first floor lobby with its 10 colours represent the sub-tropical visual flavor of South Florida: the constant cerulean blue sky, turquoise waters, bamboo leaf green, yellow and orange sun tones and sand.
As juxtaposition, the second floor’s stark black and white represents an abstracted" street traffic" image. In addition, three art glass windows burst with colour, light and movement. Fused glass pieces on the lobby’s side walls reference paper and other solid objects that have "blown" into the space.
