The late artist, Kurt Runstadler (1955-2006) had over 25 years experience creating works of metal, glass, and stone. He had over 30 national and international art exhibitions and was awarded numerous commissions for large scale site-specific works including at UC Davis Medical Center, Royal Park Hotel, Tokyo; Sheraton Singapore Hotel; Brandies University, and Butterworth Foundation, Grand Rapids. Kurt chose to make sculpture because he liked the idea of its three dimensions and the ability to capture and hold space. In his final years, he created what he called, "Light Sculptures" where science meets art. The main focus was on the dI-choric filters, made up of several layers of metal oxides. The glass has no color but transmits colored shadows that change with your viewing perspective. Kurt said," Perspective rules our life as each person perceives the whole world from their point of view."
