clere·sto·ry (ˈklir-ˌstȯr-ē, -st(ə-)rē\) – Part of an interior wall rising above the adjacent roof with windows admitting light. Clerestory 80 is part of an ongoing series of recent sculptures that references Suprematist/Constructivist forms and colours while incorporating internal mirrors that channel light through the body of the work.
To date these ‘periscope’ works include Shoe Gaazers, Navel Gazers and Lux Ductors. The title is a deliberate nod to the architectural qualities of the sculpture.
