[UN]INVOLVED is an exploration of lines, light, and glass. Through an investigation of spectral color, Abram Deslauriers relies on chance and the properties of glass to create compositions that are complex and, at times, feel other-worldly. Driven by his playful, meditative process, Deslauriers examines the intersection of chroma curves in this new body of work.
