COLOR THEORY ARTWORKS were inside boxes of vacuum coated glass and electric light. The translucent color was airbrushed oil paint.

During my meditation studies I learned about the energy “chakra” system in the body. Each chakra is a part of a certain light wavelength. From the base of the spine (red) to the heart (green) to the crown of the head (violet), the sequence of wavelengths are in the reverse order as an optical rainbow with red at the top. This got me into color theory studies, which fascinated me so much that my art images became the separated sequences of light, like rainbows. This was not about thedecorative rainbows and “flower children” of the same era.
