Exploring the moment suspended between seeing
and understanding what is being seen.
January 14, 2016 - April 10, 2016
Curator: Jodi Throckmorton, Curator of Contemporary Art
Emil Lukas explores the moment that is suspended between seeing and understanding what is being seen. For his Morris Gallery presentation, he will display two facets of his work on visual perception: a selection of his “thread paintings" and a sculpture that represents an exciting new direction for his work.
Lukas creates radiant fields of atmospheric color by criss-crossing layers of thread over a shallow wooden tray. He builds the voids at the center of these pieces through the improvisational selection of compatible and contrasting colors. It is only upon close examination that the viewer comprehends that Lukas is creating these optical wonders with thread. Similarly, Lukas will install an interactive, human-sized, sculpture that disorients and reveals the way the eye comprehends three-dimensional form.
