The New York artist’s fascination with, and mastery of, light and transparency is manifested in these eight removable panels, printed on a translucent stock which approximates the Mylar Harris used in her original drawings.

New York–based artist Kira Lynn Harris received her MFA from the California Institute of the Arts and completed the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program in 1999. Her work has been shown at P.S.1/MoMA Contemporary Art Center, the Miami Art Museum, and the Studio Museum of Harlem, where she also was Artist-in-Residence from 2001 to 2002. Harris, a member of the arts collective Nomads and Residents, designed the sets for Via Sacra, a work by the Elisa Monte Dance company at New York’s Joyce Theater, in 2005.
