Artist Statement:

What happens when you separate a being that holds some kind of spiritual agency, such as an angel, from the space surrounding it? You create a sanctuary. However, referencing the line and the suggestion of the grid recalls notions of reduction, abstraction and the modern movement of de stijl. Within the light of the projected line, space, the angel and the enclosing sanctuary find themselves obliterated.
