Dorothy Gillespie is known for her three-dimensional, painted cutout shapes and swirls. These cascades and explosions, made from aluminum and steel, are luminous and kaleidoscopic, seeking to ignite the viewer’s imagination. Her two-dimensional renderings of these colorful, metal forms create an equally festive atmosphere.
