Artist Statement:


    Contemporary Golden is built on top of incredible geological wealth, a pocket of resources and power existing just below the surface. Over the last two centuries, this geology generated a demand for engineers that facilitated a culture of research, technology and innovation. The Golden of today is a combines this physical history with geopolitics; it is a global innovator in high tech materials and applications and a center for mining operations around the world.

    The ceiling was chosen as the site of the painting to simulate a subterranean space, calling attention to the geology of Golden.
