We are pleased to present painting, sculpture and photography by artists who use light as a medium. These artists draw on light’s unique properties to define form, challenge visual perceptions and create extraordinary sensory experiences.
Pakistani-American artist Anila Agha laser cuts elaborate patterns into metal to create immersive large-scale light installations. When lit from within, they cast mesmerizing floor-to-ceiling shadows that transform the surrounding environment.
Inspired by the brilliant glow of neon signs on the streets of Tokyo, New York-based Japanese painter Hiroshi Senju began using fluorescent pigments. These cascading waterfalls appear black and white in daylight, but under ultraviolet light, fluoresce a brilliant electric blue heightening the sensation of rushing water.
London-based photographer Karen Knorr creates sumptuous, layered imagery using her keen understanding of natural light to transform historic architectural settings in Asia and Western Europe into luminous environments, where the line between reality and illusion is blurred.
Also on view will be work by German-born artist Udo Nöger, Korean artist Chun Kwang Young, Japanese and American artist Miya Ando, and Beijing-based sculptor Zheng Lu.
