This work is very optical. It is composed of several layers of material on steel. In a dimly lit environment, the viewer sees an image of a mammatus cloud that I photographed in 2015 just after a tornado passed through Kansas. When the environment is brightly lit, the viewer will see several hundred custom-cut vinyl images swirling behind the photograph. The photograph itself is printed on two layers of perforated vinyl and attached to a mirror. This work is part of a series called WEATHER POEM that I began in 2015.

PLEASE NOTE: As seen in the photos, this artwork is highly reflective due to the mirrored surface. It will change at different angles and in different lighting. This is my intention.
