Alpha is dynamic in shape, color, and size: a truly attention-grabbing work of art. Unlike pieces that attempt to expose the unique qualities of their materials, Alpha is almost unrecognizable as metal, presenting simply as layered shapes. The boldness of color and shape, as well at the utter simplicity of this piece, shows how influential her work as a commercial art director and designer continues to be. Pepper lives and works in Todi, Italy, and New York City.
