The article focuses on Lightplay, an artwork created by Gail Resen, which consists of panels, typically either 12 inches or 24 inches square, hung together to make up a larger work in the U.S. According to Resen, she intends the series to be viewed as groupings of squares, interest emanating not only from the appearance of the individual pieces and the play of light and shadow on surface, but also from the way the eye jumps from one to another, seeing similarities, noting differences, sensing rhythms and patterns. Moreover, after working on woven and painted surface pieces for a few years, she began to enjoy the texture, details and shadow effects of her work.
