  • About the work
Oil, graphite, silver leaf, silverpoint on linen. This is part of the "unfolding" series. The center represents the complete cube, with one of it's square facets touching a fixed 2D plane. Each subsequent step (moving outward from the center) unfolds the cube in such a way that one additional square is now touching the plane. The silver shapes on the perimeter represent the completely unfolded cubes including several that are mirror images. For each step the color of the central dot denotes the shape created by the squares that are touching the plane. The ones that are triangles have a corresponding mirror image shape represented by a triangle pointing in the other direction. The color of the inner circle represents the number of folds a given shape is from the center. And the color of the outer circle represents the way that the facets of the cube are connected to each other regardless of whether they are laying flat on the plane. NOTE there are a lot of notebook pages that go along with this and which need to be photographed.
