Recently I’ve been developing a SunTest series documenting the daily changes in a group of paintings which include my most fugitive, light sensitive colors.

SunTest #3 ~ Day 1, 12, 35, 2019

SunTest #3 ~ Day 1, 12, 35, 2019

50 x 60 inches
digital capture, dye sublimation on aluminum
(edition of 3)

I’m digitally scanning the paintings each day to capture fleeting moments as the images evolve. I've designed color formulas with some that will remain permanent while others disappear. This triptych shows three particular points in time (the first day, 12th day, and 35th day).

I mask off sections of the SunTest paintings before exposing them to light. For this one I created special color formulas - some very light sensitive and others very permanent.

SunTest #2 ~ Day 1, 9, 12, 25, 2019

SunTest #2 ~ Day 1, 9, 12, 25, 2019

78 x 98 inches overall
digital capture, dye sublimation on aluminum
(edition of 3)

This grouping shows four moments while the painting was being exposed to light (the first day, 9th, 12th, and 25th day).

SunTest #6 ~ Day 13, 2019

SunTest #6 ~ Day 13, 2019

37 x 37 inches
digital capture, dye sublimation on aluminum
(edition of 3)

This print features Day 13 in the life of this painting as it was being exposed to light.

SunTest #6 ~ 9 Moments, 2019

SunTest #6 ~ 9 Moments, 2019

115 x 115 inches
digital capture, dye sublimation on aluminum
(edition of 3)

Multiple panel installation with 9 frames of the sequence.

SunTest #8 (5 moments), 2019

SunTest #8 (5 moments), 2019

45 x 95 inches
digital capture, dye sublimation on aluminum
(edition of 3)

This print shows a section of a painting with 5 "frames" or moments digitally assembled side-by-side for comparison. I created the painting using only stains and dyes that are super fugitive / light sensitive.

SunTest #7 ~ Day 10, 2019

SunTest #7 ~ Day 10, 2019

42 x 33 inches
digital capture, dye sublimation on aluminum
(edition of 3)

This print features Day 10 in the life of this painting as it was being exposed to light. (This image will be part of a multi-panel piece - check back later for a view of the entire installation.)
