i'm particularly interested in the idea of blurring the lines between painting, sculpture, installation, craft and design. joan grubin's work encompasses this idea and is also visually intriguing. about the work she writes:
These floating paintings exist in the gap between painting and object. Subtle manipulation of color relationships between the frontal plane and the colored glow on the wall causes an optical disorientation, which raises questions about the discrepancy between what we see and what we know.
