About the Work
Notes on Space, 2006
27.5 x 18.25 inches
In Notes on Space, perspective lines of the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci are superimposed over the outline of a lush and leafy landscape. The inserts are a fragment of the microscopic image of a cross-section of the orchid stem and an image of a satellite dish. The print represents a compressed view of diverse ways of comprehending the space around us and the space of drawing.

ABOUT THE PATRON PRINT PROGRAM:
Each year we offer a new set of limited edition prints available exclusively to our members at the Postmodernist level and up. Artists who have been a part of the Halsey Institute’s programming have specially created these prints for us. Beginning at the POSTMODERNIST level ($350), you may choose from one of the prints we have available. Many of the prints are featured on the walls of our hall of Patron Prints located on the first floor of The Marion and Wayland H. Cato Jr. Center for the Arts, just down the hall of the Halsey Institute. Gradually, you can build your art collection while supporting adventurous contemporary art in Charleston!
