About

Carved Acrylic Sculpture (Green) 48 x 15 x 2 inches Edition 1 of 5 When Collier creates a new water surface she starts with a brush that she builds with software. This brush is essentially a model of wind because wind is the source of waves in the scale of her surfaces. She says, "I think about what wind is: the movement of warmer air rushing chaotically towards cold. The motion never stops, so the wind of today has in it ancient turbulence." Even though Collier does not use specific water references, she does seek to make the surfaces physically accurate, so given the laws of chance, she says, "they actually could have occurred somewhere, a million years ago or yesterday." When a surface is finished she carves it from an acrylic block using the CNC router in her studio in Sausalito. Finally, she polishes it to optical clarity. (Wall mounts are available for an extra fee - please see images 3 and 4 for examples.)
