Sun Drawing

What is a Sun Drawing?

Working with sunlight and time in combination with metals and optically coated glass, the Artist creates reflected images of light that move and change in harmony with the cycle of the sun. As sunlight touches the carefully shaped metals and glass, continuously changing images appear. 

To experience Sun Drawings is to see brilliant images of light soar across walls, evolving and dissolving as the sun makes its daily sweep of the earth. The changing images evoke a calming sense of connection to the natural world, to silent rhythms of the earth and sky, marking hours, days and seasons. Each Sun Drawing works with the path of sunlight relative to the point on earth where it resides, orienting viewers in time and space.
