ARTIST TALK:

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 12, NOON TO 1PM

 

“Deploying photo, neon, and found objects, I triangulate a

conversation between photography, light art, and sculpture. These are

linked together by twisted rebar I pull from demolition sites. The rebar

is mimicked in turn by the neon, which is bent following the rebars

jagged contours. The neon functions as a fragile, glowing, anti-shadow

of the hard dull metal. Essentially, re-tracing and re-telling this violent

narrative. These serve as the dimensional mounting structure for resinsoaked

photographs immersed in epoxy like insects in amber. I call

them ‘Neon-Hybrids’.”

-John Schlesinger
