6am - Oliver Sears Gallery, Dublin Ireland
June 28th - July 31st 2018
Nineteen paintings and two site-specific wall drawings combine to give the viewer an immersive experience. Merging drawing and painting with LED lighting technology and audio. Creating an environment that suggests the transition and passage of time, the theme at the core of a body of work addresses migration. By considering the light of sunrise and sounds of the dawn, a cycle of absence and return is mirrored throughout the space which was once a home.
SLIVER - Kustera Projects, Red Hook, Brooklyn, USA
November 11th 2017 - January 12th 2018
SLIVER brings together a series of triptych paintings on canvas. The frames are inlaid on the reverse side with LED lighting and are immersed in a 360° audio soundscape. The paintings illuminate the gallery space, suggesting transitions of time and experience through color, light and sound.
As the light in the room changes, slivers of audio can be heard, weaving together fragments of the the Dawn Chorus song, as well as elements of music by Irish composer Donnacha Dennehy and snatches of conversation that document a journey of migration (Lisseth’s) from Guatemala to America.

CORE - Capitol Theater Port Chester New York (Permanent Installation) 2012
A series of three large pencil drawings on paper, housed in brushed aluminum frames and backed with LED lighting. Commissioned for the lobby of the legendary Capitol Theater concert hall in Port Chester New York, the large-scale works are a mediation in time and color. The works cycle through a rage of pulsating hues that slowly change over time. They reflect the silence of the studio practice and a merging of mark-making with technology in the public space.
