Installing the hanging artwork

Red Sky Morning is an installation of an imagined, micro view of a cloud structure, translated into a macro scale by Mark Rumsey.

Rumsey uses folded velum to construct "droplets" that create layers of cast shadows and transluscent light. The experience of looking at the work in the gallery is akin to staring at the clouds, or watching the wind sweep across a vield of wheat, or laying on the ground and staring up through a canopy of trees.
