Tall and slender, this sculpture deceives our eyes. When we look at it from the front it appears to be translucent with a gradient tint of orange, reminiscent of a California sunset. When viewed from the side, the orange hue is solid throughout the piece, like an elongated piece of candy. What do you see when you look at this work?
