Wall Right:   Three Equal Rectangles Defining Three Equal Squares , first of three versions, 1996, 67.25 x 176 in, 1 inch gaffer tape. The title came first as a puzzle that might or might not have a solution. It did. But not until 20 years after its solution by trial and error was it discovered that this work is an expression of the fibonacci series.  Floor:   Twist,  2011 ,  paint on plywood, three parts each approximately 18 inches long.
  Object into Symbol , 1999 – 2012, paint on 27 aluminum panels, 5.33 x 31 ft: each panel 1 x 2 ft. An arrangement of all the shapes between a rectangular and cruciform shape that can be made by adding or subtracting corner triangles. This was conceived as a purely aesthetic object but has the curious mathematical property that every significant numerical relationship in it can be expressed by the term (3 to x power + 3 to y power). This discovery will result in minor adjustments to future installations. In 2012 show "Figures and Grounds" at The Arts Club of Chicago, guest curator Anne Rorimer.
  Untitled,  2018, Flashe vinyl paint on canvas. This is an example using  standard off-the-shelf canvases with little change, something that could be explored further. The arrangement was designed for the natural light in my studio.

  U-turn,  1994, metal, proposal. Each object rotated on both its horizontal and vertical axes to form the next position. Each approx. 6 ft. in length.
