Bold, bright colors in geometric and organic shapes form a world of wonder in this new site-specific installation by artist Bernadette Witzack (MFA 2013).

A note from the artist: I am an improvisational, process-oriented artist. I usually draw and paint on wood, so working with transparent materials was a big challenge for me. One of the special things about the Sidewalk Surprise gallery is that viewers can actually see through the artwork. I have never been in the position to experiment with light in this way, and so I was excited to work with transparent materials. The bold, bright colors and graphic elements in this piece are inspired by children’s blocks, toys and books as well as the basic shapes in the world all around us. I hope you enjoy finding all the little shape moments and color stories hidden in Picture Picture.
