I’m strongly affected by Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD); on sunny days I’m “up”, and on cloudy days “down”. Yellow for me evokes the promise of Spring and seasonal renewal. It helps battle the dark emotional months of Winter, and it promises joy and hope for the future. The triangular forms are a small tribute to Sir Isaac Newton’s groundbreaking experiments with light and color, and the beginning of the scientific revolution.
In this sculpture, I’ve tried to encapsulate the form, color, light, motion, and hope of Spring (and Science), as sunlight strengthens and nature emerges again from the winter snows -- to grow “UP!”.
