Homage to the Wheel of Color. Group exhibition at Ruth's Table Gallery, 3160 21st St, San Francisco, CA. Installation of a hybrid painting, foregrounding the ambiguity of projected color versus pigmented color. Because projected color also supplies the light by which we see the pigment, video projected on a painting creates a perceptual puzzle — it’s impossible to distinguish what is painted and what is projected unless the content is moving. The large scale painting incorporates a video projection from the Incarnation series.
