Light Making Motion: Works on Paper
Electric Works presents Elaine Buckholtz Light Making Motion: Works on Paper July 8 – August 20, 2011 Artist Reception: Friday, July 8, 6 - 8 PM Electric Works is pleased to announce Light Making Motion: Works on Paper and in Light, a solo show by Elaine Buckholtz. Buckholtz will take over the entire gallery—including the Project Space—for this exhibition that will feature video, light-based work and works on paper. Buckholtz' current work will employ video projection, channeled light plates, a trove of optical devices in vitrines as well as vibrant prints on the wall. Presentationally simple, Buckholtz' projections and light-bending apparatus charge the exhibition space with an otherworldly glow that alters the viewers' perceptions. Buckholtz' presentations of transformed objects and lenses into visual apparatus feel like a peek behind the curtain in the Wizard's laboratory: viewers will have the chance to interact with the exhibition by using the various optical devices Buckholtz has populated the gallery with. The large-scale video installation in the Project Space, previewed in its nascent form at the gallery a year ago, is the crown jewel in this ambitious manipulation of light and color.
