This work is from the series Sky Black Ray. It refers to a series of concepts that Prest explores: a space of openness that is both empty and full (sky); the darkness and mystery that constitute the center or focal point of the work (black); and the fluctuating fields of lines beginning at one point but radiating out into infinity (ray). The colors themselves, as responses to the cadences and topographies of the sensory world, are experienced as deep, interior fields that undergo subtle changes as they are observed. Prest’s works present perceptual puzzles that insist our eyes focus and refocus continuously. Her structures are understated and subtle, offering a range of possible shapes and unique interpretations.
