Curated by Todd Davis
(Debora Alanna was exhibiting under the name `Debora K-M prior to 2007.)¨Light as Material – Google Books


Mixed Media

(styrene, glass, neon, florescent lights, black lights, stool, plastic sheet, aluminum expanded mesh, string lights,
incandescent lights, poly balls, grout, cement, alabaster, cinder block)

 Each work of this show was based on a poem called
‘Hundred Headless Woman’ by Max Ernst.
The incorporation of light into each work moved illumination from
outside the work to integrate it within and as an integral part of the sculpture.
