In Wrapped Attention, the eye is drawn inwards, along maze-like paths from the edge towards the "center." The spirals we see at first resolve into concentric rings, until, at a moment's inattention, they snap into their spiraling swirl again.
This piece is best viewed from a distance of six to ten feet; just far enough to defeat the finger's desire to trace the color patterns, yet close enough to allow the eye to trace them. Simply framed, the work measures 15"x19".
In this instance, the entire edge of the work is revealed, to allow that impression of entering a maze. Without these entry points, the piece would lose some of its power, as you can see in this hypothetical framing:
Framed (as is): $950.00, shipping included.
Unframed: $850.00, shipping included.
