Light and space
William D. Cannon Art Gallery | Carlsbad, CA
June 22 - August 28, 2019
The exhibition was inspired by the Light and Space movement of the 1960’s that originated in Southern California. Rooted in minimalism, and closely related to geometric abstraction, work associated with the movement was characterized by its focus on visual perception through light, space, and volume. Traditionally expressed in industrial materials such as neon, glass, acrylic and resin, the founding artists either created artificial light or directed light naturally to produce a purely sensory experience. The premise of the show was to feature the second generation of artists who continue to work within these original elements, while innovating and expanding those definitions.
