Floating Squares are textured pieces showcasing a block of vibrantly aligned dichroic glass stripes set against a contrasting somber background. The stripes consist of a spectrum of colors including red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. These colorful stripes have a holographic and iridescent quality, as the light plays off the surfaces, creating varying hues. Surrounding the colorful block is a tactile, dark gray field, The pattern has tangible depth, adding to the overall texture of the piece. The stark contrast between the vivid, lustrous stripes and the dark, barren texture draws the eye directly to the luminous colors, creating a striking visual effect. The artwork balances elements of geometry and chaos, of brightness and darkness.
