Purple Rain

purple rain sm

This piece explores the color red--variations from purple to peach. The spiral tubes fade up and down in a gentle sequence simulating a light rain. Three thin transparent sheets of plexiglass float over the neon tubes. Cutouts allow the viewer to see full color as well as shaded color. A reflective red mirror plexiglass is the surface underneath the neon tubes. The interaction of these layers and the light creates the look of rain on a street.
