This piece is a juxtaposition of textural figures cut into the back layer with a color spectrum printed on them and a photograph of a violent storm cloud I took while chasing tornados in June 2015. This piece was built using multiple layers of ultrachrome printed perforated vinyl and printed sheets of regular vinyl cut by CNC machines to add layers of depth. It is highly reflective. The composition in the photograph is showing some reflection from the inside of my studio. The work itself will reflect the environment that it is in. The piece has brushed steel edge.
