About this Artwork
This piece is part of a series begun in 2013 and is inspired by time spent working in Umbria, Italy.
These pieces were inspired by Gourlay's response to the surrounding color and the geometry of the architecture. They also play with thoughts about sound and music and how that is reflected around a space.
In the title zeri blue the word zeri comes from the Etruscan word meaning free or unclouded and reflects her interest in the ancient stone sculpture and other artifacts that she saw from this culture.
