'Trip the Light Fantastic' explores how artists use light in their work.
The ubiquitous yet elusive qualities of light have been a constant fascination to artists; from the dramatic chiaroscuros of early baroque painting to the Impressionists’ obsessive documentation of natural light patterns; to Minimalist neon sculptures and projected lightworks, and the experimental Light Shows of 1960s psychedelic gigs and club events.
This new exhibition brings together a group of five British artists and designers who, working with glass, light, sound, mixed media and animation, continue this legacy in their contemporary practice.
Features Katy Dove, The Illustrious Company - musician and sound artist Martyn Ware (Heaven 17) and lighting designer Pip Rhodes - Kate Owens and Martin Richman.
Curated by National Glass Centre and guest curator Emma Underhill, UP Projects.
