Rain is an installation of a large scale painted water body with glistening rain drops. It’s created from layers of paint and pure pigment on a 20’ x 12’ wall. Acrylic sculptures welded from mirrored acrylic sheet create three dimensional prismatic water beads.
The work was inspired by Houston’s dramatic rainstorms in the summer months. The work is made to be experienced from a variety of vantage points. The mirrored acrylic sculptures are multidimensional at different angles and seem to change shape when passing by. Viewed straight-on, the blue mirrors reflect back but with a blue overtone as if underwater.
