Dana Gingras


            This new series of work entitled Color and Perception is a departure from my large-scale public sculptures, and is a more intimate examination of the line between sculpture and painting. I have always been fascinated by the interrelationship of colors and shadows, and the effect that they have on our sensory experience.  These works, created from thin plates of steel apparently floating fractions of an inch off each other, are intended to create a subtle visual illusion.   The elementary composition, the flatness and pureness of color are meant to soothe the viewer, while the shadows and depth attempt to shift the eyes perception alternately between the two-dimensional and three-dimensional.
