“Alexander’s Dark Band” is the dark area that appears between two rainbows in the event of a double rainbow. The paintings in Alexander’s Dark Band look at the history of painting in two ways and use a monochromatic or multicolored spectrum to do so. With a veil-like quality on the surface of each work, digital images of these paintings are very difficult to capture, and the eye continues to search for what it’s seeing.
