Blanketed in darkness, a grand staircase leads to a huddle of windowless rooms. With its carved banisters, mirrored columns, and derelict shelving hardware, this relinquished retail space has been transformed by 14 artists into a floor of projected lights, moving images, and contoured shadow.
Each artist featured in Solar Flashback has constructed an armature for light where colorful adumbration fabricates an illusory space. The interplay between form and illumination sketches vibrant reveries, indiscernible shadows, and potential energies which serve as counterparts to examine identity, fantasy, and the construct of self. These collected works conjure the duality of reflection as both a physical phenomena and entryway towards introspection.
Solar Flashback harnesses the chromatic and spatial potential of light on its elusive path as it’s reflected and refracted in a direct visual array of video, sculpture, photography, and installation.
