He was pretty candid and it was very useful.’”

The Green Verb, ‘The “verb” of the title is the laser; the subjects are space, light and color, and the predicate is the architecture of space, Krebs said. The title also is a compliment to cooperative Ohio State Library personnel who work in the Front Street building, Krebs said. ”I like to find a place that gives me two good, clean moves – like a chess game – then work from there,” he said. He turned down an opportunity to tour with the Rolling Stones, explaining that rock artists want “flicker and flash” and the “situation simply didn’t lend itself to making art.”’

Its geometry is temporal. It cannot be seen at once or in one day or month. It is not the same in summer as it is in fall….Krebs spent three years figuring out the year-round patterns they paint. Some of his prisms catch the sun only two hours every year. Certain walls are painted at certain times of day. And then there is the eye….It is a portrait of the eye of the artist’s daughter, Heather.”
